Trumpetist Verneri Pohjola has been an important part of the modern Finnish jazz scene for over a decade. As such, he has established himself internationally as well. At the launch party of Archipelago Sea Jazz, visitors were treated with a brief glimpse of The Dead Don’t Dream – an album which is bound to bring listeners closer to the extended expression which Pohjola possesses. Different shades of jazz create a powerful imaginary world, where improvisational energy ties acoustic and electronic means of expression to each other.
