Finnish-American Raoul Björkenheim is not only known as an outstanding fusion guitarist, but also as a busy networker, who, in his almost 40-year career, has encountered musicians such as Bill Laswell and collaborated with drummer Lukas Ligeti in the Shadowglow duo. Björkenheim celebrated his first big success with his compatriot Edward Vesala in the early 1980s. He is now concentrating on the eCsTaSy quartet, an intensive three-year collaboration with Pauli Lyytinen, Jori Huhtala, and Markku Ounaskari. Since the quartet’s foundation, Björkenheim and his fellow travelers have honed their skills on a one-year tour, which makes for a marvelous jazz-rock performance.
