At Turntable Lab – Mysterium Magnum "Gotta give it up to Jimi Tenor, the dude is never stagnant and constantly evolving his sound. Case in point with his latest effort, Mysterium Magnum, recorded with the de facto Finnish national big band, UMO Jazz Orchestra. He deviates from what most would think "big band" music sounds like and instead delivers contemporary pieces that fuse funk, jazz, cinematics, and more. He even joins in and plays a Russian Ritm-2 synth, tenor sax, and flute himself! Lots to soak in here with 12 tracks on cherry red vinyl."
