Less is more for bassist Jori Huhtala’s new group, Jori Huhtala 3. The warm and rounded foundation of the double bass; the agile and breezy saxophone; and the orchestral range of the piano from dark and stormy to tender tinkle and prepared percussiveness are the building blocks of their characteristically organic and acoustic sound. The trio’s acclaimed debut album came out earlier this year.
