Head to Head

Head to Head

Internationally renowned trumpeters Jukka Eskola and Verneri Pohjola join forces in an exciting new project. Head to Head presents music tailored for a two-trumpet quintet, simultaneously featuring the strong, personal sounds of some of the most unique musicians of the Finnish jazz scene.

A group featuring two trumpets is a comparatively rare sight. Jukka and Verneri have chosen to steer clear of the normal "battle" premise usually associated with two-trumpet musical situations, rather featuring their unique musical sensibilities and blending the cool sound of their instruments. Their repertoir consists mainly of original compositions, arranged by the whole group together.
