Old Time Jazz Band, Recordings During 1994...1997

Old Time Jazz Band, Recordings During 1994...1997:


Again there has been changes in the personnel.
Pekka Perjo has returned to the gang - after being away 30 years! He was one of the very first members for a while in the beginning. The other guy to join our band was Jussi Valto on tuba. These two men are still mainstays in the current ensemble. The interesting point concerning them is that they have earlier both been members of the competing tradjazz band - DDT Jazzband - in Finland.

I have chosen here the best tunes from different happenings around Finland. In addition to instrumental tunes there are some vocal tunes, too. Pirjo Bergström's singing is again sensitive and full of power on four tracks.

There is a special feature in the tune "Loveless Love" - I have tried to make it as a tribute to Johnny Dodds, my virtual master, who had recorded it in the twenties.
