Trombonist-singer Jay Kortehisto is known as a charismatic entertainer. He released his debut album this spring. The songs where co-written with a famous saxophone player Pope Puolitaival. The texts are written in Finnish by Kanerva Räsänen and Juki Välipakka and they dig in to the mind sets of grown men. Kortehisto has played in the Finnish jazz scene already for 20 years and has been a part of over 200 recordings within his career. Beside this band that carries his name, he’s also the head of a rhythm and blues combo called Screaming Jay & The Bones.
