Spaced Out will soon be available, on May 1st (preorders are being taken already) … meanwhile, here’s a promo video and a pre-mastered audio sampler.
On Spaced Out, Jari‘s compositions lean on the traditions but always seem to come out a little bit odd-metered and offbeat to bring out new musical angles to the old views. Jimbo extracts rhythmic punch into the soup from his long hard rock drumming career but also manages to display many other sides, combining nicely into a cohesive whole. Multi-instrumentalist Jari provides bass, keyboards and over half of the guitars while the other half comes from a roster of international guest stars, one more spectacular than the other, consisting of Teemu Mäkelä, Kari Riihimäki, Ilkka Rantamäki and Steve Thornbrugh. Icing on the cake on selected cuts is provided by Bill Lieske on flute, Michael Lake on trombone and Jussi Mäkelä splitting his personality into a full percussion group.
