The Penguin Guide to Jazz calls Edward Vesala "a major musical presence [who] deserves the widest possible recognition." Nordic Gallery comprises all the colours in his broad palette, from Finnish folklore to contemporary classical music, from rock to idiosyncratic jazz. The album bursts with "found sounds" from around the world and the contributions of guest players. "A highly original composer with a palette that includes harp, woodwinds, accordion and percussion, as well as more familiar jazz instruments. Vesala can write impressionist pieces of great beauty." - BBC Music Magazine
