Trumpeter Kalevi Louhivuori is known to handle his American jazz traditions with care, and turning his Davis-Ellington-influences into sophisticated, soulful tunes with modern approach. On his upcoming second album with this quintet he gives a nod to American noir, with a Helsinki twist, as the Stories album is a narrative of a late-night taxi driver in the colourful Kallio district.
