  1. Big thanks for concert at Mikaelinkirkko, Turku!

    I had short trip, so slept very short and today at office had sleepy day :)
    But concert was worth to not sleep :)
    Interesting was to listen four songs from new album. Bit unusually sounded Halleluja, since I heard first (few years ago) your singing in English :) Now you sings it in Suomeksi, so it sound like different song, but I liked.
    Else you did very nice Suojelusenkeli, since before at YT I find that song sounding very sorrow. You did it bit lighter and with hope, so that expression is most nicest.

    One of very nice song performance was Avaruus (oh it was in English). I very like the accompanying musicians playing in this – virtuoso Timo guitar and Juho cello vibrations, and Antti piano party. You guys is one excellent team together with Jarkko.
    Kiitos!

    Sometimes I thought that this concert variant I like better that those songs with orchestra, though with orchestra it sounds richer (what it is in album CD).
    But if songs would be recorded with accompanied group, it sounded even fantastic.
    Of course, it only my opinion ;)
    Maybe I heard very well that concert sound, since I sat very close to one of speakers … there can be heard every intonation of J`s voice … and even breath… fantastically impressive.
    Maybe next album you will do with this small musician group ?! ;)
    Oh and in end Ave Maria :) Great!
    Though I thought that concert would be closing with song Finlandia … :)

    So all the songs were like as small pearls which Jarkko did with vocal, like nice ornaments putting one to another together in one beautiful Christmas row :)
    Thanks, Jarkko, once more for a great another album and nice concert!
    Thanks all musicians supporting him!

    See you in some next concerts! :)
