Pekka is the new, epochal album in Finnish trumpeter/composer Verneri Pohjola's already illustrious and prolific career. An album that promises to be a defining moment in Finnish culture, Pekka reinterprets the music of Verneri's late father Pekka Pohjola, the internationally acclaimed and revered prog-rock bassist and composer, through the prism of his son's unique vision.

Pekka is one of the most anticipated albums to emerge from the Finnish progressive, rock and jazz scenes for some time. Seeking to combine Pekka's music, adored in Finland and internationally during the last four decades, with Verneri's powerful sense of music making, it's an album that will excite, inspire and move many fans across borders, generations and genres. The music on Pekka, is taken from albums spanning over two decades.

As Verneri explains. "Of course I had grown up with Pekka's music and I had my favourites such as Benjamin, First Morning and The Dragon that I wanted to record. Often I was surprised to find music I did not know but I knew I wanted to find a balance to the whole album. Rediscovering the music was an emotional and therapeutic exercise for me and recording the album provided me with the perfect way to remember him as a father and musician."
