Timmion (Finland), 2019. New Copy ... $19.99
Sami Linna might look like some sort of Tyrolean hipster on the cover of the album, but his guitar has been behind a fair bit of great funky work on the Timmion label in recent years – which is why it's great to hear him up front here in the lead!

A very cool record from saxophonist Robert Mavouzny and trombonist Al Lirvat – the latter of whom also cut some biguine albums on the French scene of the 70s!
