Martti Vesala Soundpost Quintet plays trumpeter Vesala’s original compositions. The frontman’s style is modern, groovy jazz with catchy tunes.
The quintet was founded in 2011, and now, five years later all the members of the band have emerged big time in the Finnish jazz scene. They draw their expression from Miles Davis’ dynamic groove in the 60s, but also from Wayne Shorter’s elegant melodies. Their debut album Helsinki Soundpost was released on German Ozella Music –label in September 2016. The quintet’s second album “Stars Aligned” will be released April 6th 2018.
