We have indeed formed a new Quartet in 2012 with pianist Aki Rissanen, bassist Antti Lötjönen and drummer Olavi Louhivuori. The group is now officially called “Liberty Ship” and we are all very excited about it. The music for the first recording of the group came out very effortlessly – The saga of Liberty Ship has started…check out the page Liberty Ship Wishing You all peace and success for the 2013!

New recordings

Hello! The fall season has started nicely! I did two new recordings, one with my new Finnish Quartet which includes drummer Olavi Louhivuori, pianist Aki Rissanen and Antti Lötjönen on bass. We had a lot of fun and good time at studio – the vibe & the flow of music was really cool! Also, an other recording was done, it´s a live recording of my solo concert at famous Temppeliaukio Church in Helsinki. The church is world wide known of its very original & modern design and from its very good acoustics. I´m very much looking forward to release these cd´s during the season 2012/13. Peace!

New CD release!

New York City & Helsinki meet on new album

Debut album released on Artist Recording Collective (ARC) label, USA – May 2012 Press release. Begun in 2011, The Esa Pietilä – Jeff Siegel Duo bridges two cities New York City & Helsinki. Their juicy freejazz flows, crunchy polyrythmical textures, diverse sound ambients and spiritual meditation-like chorals bring in a completely personal way of duo improvisations taken into action. With New York City based drummer Jeff “Siege” Siegel and saxophonist Esa Pietilä (Helsinki, Finland) the line-up´s talents span across a multitude of musical ideas. The upcoming album was recorded at the famous NRS Studio in New York in 2011. The album´s name “Out Doors” reflects to multiple meanings of opening and exploring “new doors” and spaces for playing “out” and the free form improvised jazz.
