Iiro Rantala: My Finnish Calendar
Iiro Rantala, the genius of the Finnish jazz field, has always crossed the genre limits with a laugh, and is still doing so in his new show My Finnish Calendar. Each piece represents a month of the year, and each also exists as an independent artistic statement. And if the storyline might not always be directly apparent from the music, Rantala has provided explanations and hilarious anecdotes in his liner notes. The sheer strength with which all this inspiration has been bubbling up becomes clear right at the beginning of the year.
