Trumpeter-singer Jose Mäenpää is known for the likes of Dalindèo and Ricky-Tick Big Band. This time Mäenpää takes it to the dark side with his trio album Ihanasti kyyninen ("wonderfully cynical"). No computers were invited to the studio, while the threesome worked on the deeply emotional and even subconsciously born album. All the song were recorded live, and Mäenpää says that the method was the middle finger to all the controlled, poised expression. Let the raw and delicate humanity shine!
