Lill’ Lisa

Abovoice1012. Release date 2004
Personnel: Kari Heinilä – tenor and soprano saxophone, Severi Pyysalo – vibraphone, Ulf Krokfors – bass, Edward Vesala – drums

Beautiful and strong music of finnish saxophonist Kari Heinilä featuring the late great Finnish drummer Edward Vesala. This became Edward Vesala’s last recording.

…Heinilä plays with great spirituality, power and soul

Timo Vähäsilta / Rytmilehti

Beautiful ballads mixed with energetic free-form blowing. The album consists mostly of Heinilä originals, there are also two nordic folksongs presented. All of the four musicians have solistic parts and show strong improvisational skills.
