Obscure Finnish jazz quintet. Although the band leader is pianist Heikki Sarmanto, the star of the show is Juhani Aaltonen whose flute is literally all over this, even more so than Lance Gunderson whose guitar are rarely fiery, like Jukka Tolonen when he's playing it cool. I could have done with a bit more rock energy though. But that's obviously not what Sarmanto were attempting here.
