OTJB Vapaalla

"Old Time Jazz Band Vapaalla" featuring Marle Mikkola
The title "OTJB Vapaalla" means "being on the band's free time" on the contrary to those many stage presentations or studio situations where recordings normally take place. So these recordings have been made during normal band rehearsals in 2005 and 2006. On some tracks the technical quality is not so gorgeous but nevertheless the sound is very satisfactory as you can hear in the gospel tune "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child", which is a sample of Marle's strong and rich voice completing the band's performance. (The text in the CD case is in Finnish.)
