As fans of groups such as the Thing know well, Swedish and Norwegian free-jazz has been an influential avant-garde force during the past decade. Take the temperature of the less-visible Finnish scene with this trio of sets. Mikko Innanen, a saxist with a huge, gritty sound and a diverse stylistic palette, headlines in the company of veteran drum master Andrew Cyrille, with woolly trio Black Motor and the Afro-Cuban-influenced Rakka setting the stage.
