The return of the Golden Trumpet

Instrumental music was highly popular in the 1950s-1980s. Abroad, such artists as Herb Albert, Horst Fischer, Eddie Calvert and Harry James, and in Finland Ossi Runne and Danish-born Jörgen Petersen made fine careers playing popular trumpet music. Today, this once very popular type of music has in practice almost vanished. The aim of this recording is to revive this forgotten genre and the magnificent numbers it produced. The album is at the same time my first solo one and a tribute to the old trumpet masters and their music.

The Return of the Golden Trumpet was recorded and mixed in summer 2015 by Jyri Sariola at the Mimix Studio in Espoo. The arrangements are mine or orchestrated from originals, and I was the producer. I wanted to make an album with a large orchestra, as was the custom in the good old days, and it was therefore fantastic to have all these tremendous musical colleagues and friends helping me to make it. Seldom is so much talent and expertise gathered under the same roof as it was in making this disc. Once again, my thanks to all the musicians.
