Press Release :
Sähkö/Puu / Jimi Tenor has returned to the label where he started his career! "Sunrise" is blessed with polyphonic funkiness, "Smoking" explores darker rhythm driven territories similar to Marc Moulin 's Placebo or Sun Ra. "Hermetic Man" has shadows of 70s progressive jazz. Feat. up and coming Finnish band KABU KABU. Produced by Didier Selin (Timmion)

A really incredible record from Jimi Tenor -- spiritual soul jazz at its best, and unlike anything else he's ever recorded before! We always knew that Jimi's had a record like this inside of him, but it's taken years to get past the colder, stiffer styles of his earlier records -- but hearing this set, it's been more than worth the wait! The style here is an Impulse Records-like blend of keyboards, vocals, horns, and plenty of percussion -- soaring out in ways that are spiritual, funky, and plenty darn righteous -- all with impeccable production from the legendary Didier, who really helps get the sound of the record right! Jimi sings a bit, and plays lots of cool keyboards -- Fender Rhodes, Farfisa, Photophone, and "symphonic piano" --a nd other players here include Timo Lassey, Jukka Eskola, and a bit of harp from Iro Haarla. Titles include "Sunrise", "Hermetic Man", and "Smoking". CD features the bonus track "Sunrise (Tatamirage mix)". DustyGroove.com
