Product Description

Finnish composer Sasu Ripatti returns with Tummaa, his first album as Vladislav Delay since 2007's Whistleblower. The new full-length marks a significant shift in emphasis in this acclaimed musician's work, reflecting a renewed interest in jazz and acoustic performance--Tummaa is far more organic and live-sounding than anything he's done before. Ripatti is a genuine musical maverick. Trained as a jazz drummer, he abandoned his instrument ten years ago. While he has largely shunned the limelight since emerging as a producer in Helsinki in the late '90s, his prolific output (as Delay, Luomo and Uusitalo, as well as collaborations with partner Antye Greie) speaks for itself. Tummaa marks a return to Ripatti's first love of performing as a percussionist. The album essentially features a live trio--Ripatti, Argentine musician Lucio Capece on clarinet and saxophone, and acclaimed Scottish soundtrack composer and arranger Craig Armstrong on piano and Rhodes. Ripatti set the tone, recording his drum parts and then inviting Capece to his studio to improvise alongside the drums. Armstrong offered recordings of pure solo piano playing he had made for the project. From these two sound sources, Ripatti began composing and arranging, and wrote a whole suite of music. The results are jaw-dropping. Ripatti is venerated as a master of rhythm and a true artisan of the studio (the photos of his immaculate analog equipment from The Wire's 2008 cover shoot had gear hounds aquiver), and captures resonant, organic, and acoustic sounds, coercing them into unearthly cadences and foreign textures that are unlike anything else--yet irresistibly hypnotic. His love of jazz is also never far from the surface.
