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. Since then, 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 critically acclaimed debut album “Helsinki Soundpost” was released in September 2016 and the follow-up “Stars Aligned” in April 2018, both by German Ozella Music. Their third album will be released 2022.
