Making Groovy Moments & Melodies
Arranger Pentti Lasanen on Tuomo J Autio:
Tuomo J Autio’s energetic style stands out in the melancholy Finnish jazz scene. His rhythmically root-like and swinging sound has been inspired by Wes Montgomery, a pioneer as soloist of big bands. Autio’s play reflects his own subtle elegance. According to Pentti Lasanen, Autio’s energetic and rhythmical style is unique in Finland.
- In the whole world only a few master this genre. Playing jazz with guitar is technically and musically demanding, but Tuomo knows his instrument. He has a clear vision and a credible style that reaches the audience
" ... in the mood of the concert reaches you even at home trough the record; I wish I`d been there "

"...such standards as Eleanor Rigby and Besame Mucho could easily sound tedious , if Tuomo wouldn´t sgueeze tears out from his guitar with a superb style."
