Ilmiliekki Quartet is a band of four star-calibre Finnish jazz musicians. The group is a key unit for each of the artists, and one of their original vehicles of creation since its formation in 2002. Here, trumpet player Verneri Pohjola, pianist Tuomo Prättälä, bassist Antti Lötjönen (of The Five Corners Quintet, Timo Lassy Band, 3TM, etc.) and drummer Olavi Louhivuori (of the late Tomasz Stanko's quintet and Oddarrang) present their first new album in 13 years. Released by Helsinki's We Jazz Records on 26 April, "Land Of Real Men" is a milestone which will stand strong in each of the four musicians already remarkable discography.
The second single to be released ahead of the album is "Ravelogue", a delicate composition by pianist Tuomo Prättälä. A track which stuns with its sheer beauty and melodic character, "Ravelogue" presents Ilmiliekki Quartet up close and personal, showing that they can pack scores of intensity into their music while keeping it light and breezy.
