Genrejazz fusion


Join a progressive jazz fusion journey! Mauri Mikkola Quintet's second release consists of electric guitarist Mauri Mikkola's instrumental compositions.

The driving forces behind the concept album have been visuality, story-telling and the celebration of imagination, creativity and curiosity. Tales of the Strange World offers its listener expressive inspiration, challenge and wonder: the expedition through mystical, unfamiliar scenery and visions is ultimately a journey to the heart.
