heikki sarmanto Everything Is It (LP, £12.50)label: Porter Records
‘Everything Is It’, recorded in 1972, was the fourth album released by Finnish pianist / composer Heikki Sarmanto, who was already considered a "veteran" of the modern Finnish Jazz scene by that time. The Big Band assembled for this recording is a bona fide Who's Who of Finnish Jazz which includes Eero Koivistoinen, Juhani Aaltonen and many others who were leaders of their own ensembles. This is European Jazz at its best, taking the essence of the Jazz spirit and combining it flawlessly with other musical sources to create a perfect amalgam. It remains untouched by the tides of time, a true classic. Limited press vinyl version also mini-poster and free download code.
