North Pipe (CD)
Vigorous. That's the first adjective that came to mind, when I first listened to the Pepa Päivinen Quartet's new album. After a couple of listens more defining terms started to drop like rain: imaginative, hungry, intense, free, exciting.
North Pipe continues onwards from the same team's (Pepa Päivinen: saxes, bass clarinet, flutes; Timo Kämäräinen: guitars; Ville Huolman: basses; Mikko Hassinen: drums) debut album (Tiram Num, 2005). It brings to mind the jazz LP's of the 60's/70's turning, when nobody thought of target groups and musicians explored new territories with gusto
and no hang-ups.
