Out on October 30th via We Jazz Records are the latest new tracks from new Southern Finland jazz quartet Oaagaada. The release is out on lovely 7” vinyl and comes with typically old school heat-pressed labels and a brown paper sleeve.
Oaagaada hail from the town of Hämeenlinna in Finland and consist of Tuure Tammi (trumpet), Sami Pekkola (sax), Tero Kemppainen (bass) and Simo Laihonen (drums).
The four have released the a-side ‘Oag-ada’ ahead of the release, and it’s this bubbling slice of avant-funk/jazz, akin to the likes of Art Ensemble of Chicago. Reads and horns blow long lines over this afro-funk backing, as solos squeal and squeak, and despite it’s liking for the free-elements of jazz, it manages to pull you along with in fine style.
