About the album

Inspired by Art Farmer's 1964 recording of Swedish folk songs, "To Sweden With Love," Chicago saxophonist Juli Wood delved into her own Finnish heritage for material to explore on her newest recording. With hauntingly beautiful melodies and harmonies that invite new interpretations, Wood and her quartet ­ with Alejandro Urzagaste on guitar, Clark Sommers on bass and drummer Mike Schlick ­ create an inspired recording of six traditional Karelian, Finnish and Aland Island songs along with two compositions by famed Finnish musician Matti Jurva. "She weaves her own straight forward statements from the horn with a great deal of heart and a real heaping helping of soul." ­ Jan­Erik Holmberg, Hufvudstadsbladet/Helsinki.
