eCsTaSy’s new CD has been mixed and will be released by Cuneiform on September 15th!

I just completed mixing our new cd at E-Studio in Helsinki, together with our great engineer Jyri Riikonen, and the plan is to release it in both CD and LP formats. The band sounds great, and especially Pauli Lyytinen and Jori Huhtala contribute with some very strong playing.

The spring season at Bar Loose ended last week with eCsTaSy topping it off with a long set, and the On the Coner series at Punavuoren Ahven ends on May 23rd when I play with the Icelandic guitarist Sigurdur Røgnvaldsson.

You can now buy my recordings on the “Discography/Store” page.  The new “eCsTaSy”cd is in stock, and some older ones too like “Shadowglow” with Lukas Ligeti. I also have in stock the complete line of Scorch Trio cds, as well as the new LP, “Made in Norway”.

In case you haven’t seen them yet, eCstaSy has a couple of new Youtube clips which you can see at the eCsTaSy website. Triad has two clips on youtube: Coltrane’s “Transition” and Triad’s Baobop , both live in January, filmed and recorded by Hekla Productions.

For anyone interested in some of my background, influences and guitar gear, read my interviews on Guitar Moderne and Finnish Music Quarterly.

That’s all for now, hope to see you at one of our shows!
