Pohjola. Pekka - Visitation (1979)

The fourth album from this Finnish artist.

Pekka Pohjola did the bass and grand piano here himself.

He had got help from numerous guest musicians providing drums, guitars, woodwinds, keyboards and a full symphony orchestra.

The fourth album from this very good artist from Finland who sadly left us back in 2008.

Despite of having a full symphonic orchestra, the music is pretty heavy fusion and cinematic music.

There is even some folk rock like themes here. 

Those themes are very pastoral and parts of the symphonic orchestra does a great job here. That is the woodwinds part of the symphonic orchestra.

Most of the music is performed by woodwinds and bass. There is the occasional keyboards, drums and guitars too.

The first half of this half an hour long album is bordering to great. The final half is somewhere between good and very good.

This is another very good album from Pekka and evidence that I lost out on a great artist while he was still alive. That is my loss.

3.5 points
