UMO feat. Sami Pitkämö

16.7.2008 >> LP 43!
18.7.2008 >> LP 43!

(FIN)
lounge, jazz, ballads

Suomen johtavan big bandin jazz-kyvyt ovat ylittämättömät, mutta UMOlla on avoin mieli ja halu tutkia tyylikenttää laajemminkin. Tenoristi/säveltäjä Lenny Pickettin (ks. oma esittely) ja kapellimestari Rich Shemarian kanssa orkesteri uppoutuu funkiin. Sami Pitkämö taas laulaa UMOn solistina Frank Sinatraa ja uuden soololevynsä jazz-balladeja.

Lähes 20-miehinen UMO on murhaava torvisoittokunta, jossa viihtyvät maan parhaat jazz-soittajat. 1975 perustetun bändin laaja levytuotanto ulottuu Sauna palaa! -kokoelman originaaleista ja Kerkko Koskisen Agathan kuvitteellisesta soundtrackista Milesin ja Zappan kaltaisten mestarien materiaaliin päivitykseen.

Sami Pitkämö on varsinainen monitaituri ja työskennellyt UMOn solistina jo Steely Dan- ja Count Basie-projekteissa. Ennen muuta Brian Wilsonin, Stevie Wonderin ja Frank Sinatran innoittama samettikurkku saa Vanhan Sinisilmän laulut hehkumaan. Pitkämö säveltää, sovittaa, tuottaa ja soittaa useita instrumentteja, erityisesti pasuunaa ja kitaraa. Lukuisissa bändeissä ja levyillä esiintynyt mies taipuu vaivattomasti funkista poppiin ja jazziin. Keväällä hän julkaisi oman albumin UMOn kanssa: Lauluja rakkaudesta ja vähän muustakin.
