Six years after the much-loved “Northbound"—described by All About Jazz as “lovely, articulate, river-deep music," a new album of emotionally- powerful ballads from outstanding composer-pianist-harpist Iro Haarla and her remarkable Finnish-Norwegian ensemble.

The line-up is unchanged, likewise the commitment of the players, top-flight improvisers, everyone. “Vespers" continues a tradition of music—and a scope feeling—that Iro helped establish in the Far North in her years as composer/arranger/orchestrator for Edward Vesala's bands (and magical ECM recordings including “Lumi," “Ode To The Death Of Jazz," “Invisible Storm" and “Nordic Gallery").
