Finnish trumpeter and composer, the son of legendary Finnish bassist the late Pekka Pohjola. Verneri is already a star in his native country and his international debut “Aurora” (ACT 2011) should enhance his reputation worldwide. It’s an assured,ambitious and highly accomplished album.
"Ambitious, innovative and superbly arranged and played with Pohjola dominating subtly throughout. "
""Bullhorn" represents a major statement from Verneri Pohjola. The writing displays an admirable breadth and maturity and the playing is excellent throughout. "
"A hugely impressive musical work and one that is highly recommended."
