”The Impromptu Session” – Wade Mikkola Quartet – Chicken Coup C7015 – 2011
The name of this CD comes from the quick decision to make a recording, when it was found out that the drummer of Mikkola's first CD, Joe Farnsworth, was coming to Finland to perform with Pharoah Sanders at the April Jazz Festival. He had an afternoon off and the recording was done in four hours. Mikkola had wanted for a long time to do a recording with the Hammond-organ. The skillful organist is the Greek, Georgos Kontrafouris, familiar already from the Mandy Gaines and The Contrasts CD's. The saxophonist with his individual sound is Jussi Kannaste, and the strong swing is guaranteed by the great Joseph Farnsworth.
