Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Over the last few years Aki Rissanen has quietly been building a name in the international jazz world both as a leader and as a sideman. With Amorandom, he delivers his most authoritative work to date. There's a fluidity in his playing and a boldness in his composing that deserves widespread praise and real recognition for being one of the finest young pianists. Described by Downbeat as a 'rising star', Amorandom is the work that will introduce Rissanen's startling new talent to a global audience.
