The fourth album by this celebrated Finnish trio whose abundance of technique allows them to tread where few jazz musicians would even think of going. Breathtakingly original, unconventional and with a touch of Scandinavian ho-ho-ho humour that always puzzles the British, it succeeds in making jazz sound surprising – no mean feat just lately.
