TRIAD

IS RAOUL BJÍRKENHEIM'S NEW TRIO

WITH

HANNU RANTANEN - BASS & ELECTRIC BASS

MIKKO HASSINEN - DRUMS

The group made it's debut in Helsinki at the Jazz Espa Happening on July the 7th 2000.

The made a great noise even if they were only playing covers which I frankly didn't even try to recognize. I was listening to them play, which they did with gusto. A great group for which I hold high hopes among the unfortunately not too densely populated Finnish jazz elite.

As always Raoul's playing is great and he is a true personality among guitarists (and a nice person as well).

Hannu Rantanen and Mikko Hassinen make up a powerhouse rhythm section which is so far not well known but hopefully soon will be heard by all of you.
