Product Description


technical comment

  • 140 gram VINYL LP EDITION

    Finnish trumpeter/composer, Verneri Pohjola is on the brink of becoming one of the most exciting and original European musicians of his generation. The new album Bullhorn is his third as leader and first with Edition Records. It features Pohjola’s long term associates, friends and Finnish all-star band: pianist Aki Rissanen, bassist Antti Lötjönen and drummer Teppo Mäkynen.

    Pohjola’s distinctive tone, with its deeply affecting purity and lyricism, and highly melodic improvising, is embedded in self-penned compositions marked by memorable and imaginative themes that steer clear of any hackneyed notion of ‘Nordic’ jazz. Bullhorn is a key album in Pohjola’s career, marking the shift from a rising star to an artist of real substance with a powerful, unique sound and a sense of deepening maturity and clarity of vision. Bullhorn is the album that finally realises Verneri’s enormous creative potential.

    "In capturing Pohjola's talent in full flower, this album takes its place among the truly finest albums of recent times." JAZZWISE

    "(Pohjola is) someone who is on the brink of becoming one of the most exciting and original musicians of his generation." BBC RADIO 3 Jazz Line-up

    "This is a beautifully executed, and quietly surprise-packed set." **** GUARDIAN
