Bassist Jori Huhtala has played in e.g. Eero Koivistoinen's and Raoul Björkenheim's bands. Huhtala's new group consists of saxophonist Jussi Kannaste and pianist Aki Rissanen. The steadfast three-piece plays acoustic jazz without a drummer. The sound of Jori Huhtala 3 ranges from mellow sentiments to faster, rhythmic pieces. On Jori Huhtala 3 album's final track, released this February, the double bass is played with a bow.
