ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BlueMusicGroup.com - Your jazz, classical and world music label

Finnish vocalist Eeppi Ursin fronts a band that crosses jazz and progressive rock perimeters, along with some pop-friendly sensibilities. Her angelic and up front vocal delivery steers the flow through a sequence of blithe dreamscapes, powerful cadenzas, and jazz-rock riffs. And with additional horns, plus string players chipping in on certain tracks, the septet's electrifying slant boasts a nicely-balanced mix. With tuneful choruses amid elements of harmonically attractive exchanges between the soloists, Ursin's velvety manner of spinning a lyric (in English) acts as a sweetener to the ensemble's edgy performances. They also commingle a few dabs of grunge and dissonance while conveying a noticeable degree of imagination and versatility. There are some twists and turns as the band navigates through rock motifs with pizzazz and verve, also dabbling with Gothic stylizations on Russian Chant. On Foolish Heart, the septet renders a cute and irrefutably endearing hook constructed upon a swaggering bossa-nova pulse and Aki Rissanen's lyrically charged acoustic piano solo. In sum, this album looms as one of those unexpected surprises. Then again, Scandinavia has blossomed into one of the more fertile musical regions on the globe, regardless of genre.

one of those unexpected surprises
Finnish vocalist Eeppi Ursin fronts a band that crosses jazz and progressive rock perimeters, along with some pop-friendly sensibilities. Her angelic and up front vocal delivery steers the flow through a sequence of blithe dreamscapes, powerful cadenzas, and jazz-rock riffs. And with additional horns, plus string players chipping in on certain tracks, the septet’s electrifying slant boasts a nicely-balanced mix.

With tuneful choruses amid elements of harmonically attractive exchanges between the soloists, Ursin’s velvety manner of spinning a lyric (in English) acts as a sweetener to the ensemble’s edgy performances. They also commingle a few dabs of grunge and dissonance while conveying a noticeable degree of imagination and versatility. There are some twists and turns as the band navigates through rock motifs with pizzazz and verve, also dabbling with Gothic stylizations on “Russian Chant.” On “Foolish Heart,” the septet renders a cute and irrefutably endearing hook constructed upon a swaggering bossa-nova pulse and Aki Rissanen’s lyrically charged acoustic piano solo.

In sum, this album looms as one of those unexpected surprises. Then again, Scandinavia has blossomed into one of the more fertile musical regions on the globe, regardless of genre or stereotype.

Compositional mind on this vocalist
Few vocalists have such a multi-dimensional (wide and deep) command of compositional ideas, production details, lyrics, singing and ultimately the means to tell a story. Eeppi Ursin can do all these things, and do it really well. "Violet" is a most welcome and fresh alternative to the evermore fastfood-aesthetics of today's pop music world. A great debut album.
