City of Women (Jimi Tenor, Edward Vesala...)
CITY OF WOMEN II (LP)
12" Vinyl UK
After nearly 20 years, the 2nd part of the musical session by Jimi Tenor and friends gets finally released.
Jimi Tenor and a group of friends visited twice at Edward Vesala's unique home (Sound and Fury Studio) in Korkeakoski in southwest Finland. It was winter 1998.
Matti Knaapi and Jimi Tenor have been designing and building instruments since early 80s. They brought vanful of apparatus to Sound and Fury which already had a large collection of Vesala's exotic and self built instruments.
During the two rather extreme sessions 13 songs got finished. The first part was released in year 2000. Sadly Edward Vesala passed away before the first part City of Women I was released.
Now after 20 years of calming down we are ready to evoke the second part of the sessions.
City of Woman is:
Edward Vesala, drums, vocals, instruments
Jimi Tenor, flute, instruments
Iro Haarla, harp
Jimi Sumen, programming
Matti Knaapi, instrument design and construction [info sheet from distr.]
