Black Motor


We Jazz

Released: 16th June 2017 | 7 track avant garde jazz album

Introspective fire music from Black Motor, one of the best kept secrets in the Finnish scene. Powerful free music brimming with energy, melodic innovation, and a strong sense of unity within the trio. Long-time members bassist Ville Rauhala and drummer Simo Laihonen are joined here by sax man Tane Kannisto (previously known from Sound And Fury) to deliver a strong musical statement, and a convincing next step for Black Motor. Especially recommended for listeners with a taste for melodic free music, such as Art Ensemble of Chicago, Anthony Braxton, and Archie Shepp, to mention but a few.

LP comes with free digital download including a bonus track.

"Both the rubato tracks and the more pulsating rhythms display a sense of swing akin to the later Coltrane groups."
Jan-Erik Holmberg, HBL newspaper
"A truly astonishing record. Fire burning. Instant classic!"
Andreas Müller, Deutschlandradio Kultur
