Sole Azul

Pauli Lyytinen – ten. sax, Harri Kuusijärvi – acc, Eero Tikkanen – b

When thieves took his instruments in Azul, Argentina, Finnish accordionist Harri Kuusijärvi decided to take the Argentinian tango, make it his own and plant it in the Nordic permafrost. Drawing on the stylistics of jazz, the group performs both tango-inspired originals and new arrangements of Finnish and Argentinian classic tangos. Their debut album will be released this summer.
