Puts a spotlight on the Finnish pianist, composer and life-force Iiro Rantala, and on what is evidently a happy and resoundingly creative phase in his life.

Seven of the thirteen compositions here are by Rantala himself, three tracks by the other players in the trio, and three more by others who, in their different ways, have helped to construct Rantala's appealing musical personality: Jimi Hendrix, Kenny Barron and Johann Sebastian Bach.

Hendrix's "Little Wing" is a reminder that Rantala has very strong roots which are well outside the jazz tradition.

This recording with the drummer Peter Erskine: "I love Peter Erskine's playing," he enthuses. "I grew up listening to him. Steps Ahead, Weather Report and particularly Word of Mouth."

The bassist of the trio is another consummate musician, Lars Danielsson, whose playing is consistently both subtle and authoritative
