Pianist, composer, and educator Tuomo Uusitalo born in Finland and, since 2012, a resident fixture of the New York City jazz scene offers up something special in Love Song, his second album as leader. Special, not only because with it Uusitalo has rewritten his name into the ledger of modern jazz in flowing script, but also because he has come more maturely into his own as an improviser. For while we can still count on the virtuosity that distinguished his debut, here Uusitalo tempers that virtuosity in the furnace of life. Joined by newer bandmates Myles Sloniker on bass and Itay Morchi on drums, Uusitalo expands on the trio dynamics of this album's predecessor with the addition of tenor saxophonist Tivon Pennicott.
