About

Sonja Virtanen – alto sax, Markus Tiiro – gtr, Timo Tuppurainen – db, Kimmo Salminen – drs
Saxophonist Sonja Virtanen brought out her debut album Vim and Vigor this spring with her quartet. Their stylistically rich repertory consists of hard bop and soul jazz numbers, which are tackled by the experienced four musicians with a sure-handed ease and flow. Strong groove and smooth melodies – Virtanen’s trademarks – take the listener from the 1950s New York to the vastness of Nordic expanses.
