A homage to John Lennon who would have been seventy-five on October 9th 2015. Rantala has demonstrated a particular gift for making this kind of homage once before. His 2011 album 'Lost Heroes' recaptured the spirit of a different musical idol in each of its ten songs, and received the annual prize of the Deutsche Schallplattenkritik and an ECHO jazz award.

In this new John Lennon tribute, Rantala turns to the musician who is perhaps greatest of all of his 'lost heroes'.

"I heard John Lennon before I knew anything about jazz," says Rantala. "How is it, I wondered, that this guy can write something quite so simple and yet so powerful?"

The solo recording 'My Working Class Hero' is a dialogue with many dimensions: between Rantala and the instrument, between the room and its acoustics, with jazz legacy and pop history, and plainly between the pianist and his icon John Lennon.
