Esa Pietila LIBERTY SHIP – Approaching 2 Disc SPECIAL EDITION CD & Download Release date: November 1st 2013

Liberty Ship is an all star ensemle of Finnish jazz greats. Helmed by Esa Pietilä on sax the musicians - Aki Rissanen (piano), Olavi Luohivuori (drums) and Antti Lötjönen (bass) - create a true force of musical nature. Their music is improvisation at its very best, full of textures, melodies and powerful rhythms.

“Approaching" will be released on November 1st and is available in two formats. The digital download and streaming version consists of 8 tracks. The 2 disc Special Edition CD consists of the same 8 tracks on CD1 and an additional 9 tracks on the second disc.

“Liberty Ship, formed in 2012, navigates the deep waters of free jazz and improvised music in constant pursuit of liberated self-expression. Liberty Ship glides gracefully out of the mist on gently rolling waves, combining the adventurous spirit and improvisation of free jazz to influences from contemporary art music outside of jazz and a Nordic cool sensibility. Their music is adventurous, mysterious, creative and unpredictable as the sea, but the crew of Liberty Ship always stays together as a cohesive unit with a single course and a unified vision, the prow firmly pointed toward the edge of the map to uncharted waters."

—Pasi Virtanen
