AINON “Drought” out now

Helsinki quartet's debut album available on We Jazz Records on LP/CD/digi. Featured on Stereogum, All About Jazz, etc.

We’re happy to present “Drought”, the debut album by AINON, a quartet led by cellist/composer Aino Juutilainen. The music of AINON might be best described as “spiritual avantgarde jazz”, with original compositions and the individual voices of the four players both playing an integral part in the music. In addition to Juutilainen, the quartet includes Satu-Maija Aalto (violin / viola), Suvi Linnovaara (saxophone / clarinet / flute) and Joonas Leppänen (of Alder Ego, drums).

The record is out there available at cool record stores, streaming and such. Go here to order your copy straight from us via Bandcamp.

The press loves it, too, as witnessed by these features on Stereogum, All About Jazz, Valon kuvia and Kulttuuritoimitus.
