"Yarra Yarra is by a jazz duo from Finland formed by the late Edward Vesala's wife Iro Haarla and the lead saxophonist of Sound & Fury-- Pepa Päivinen. The album was recorded during the darkest and coldest day in Finland. A very melancholy and beautiful ballad album, rooted deeply in Finnish folk forms and jazz abstraction. This is also the first recording which includes many of Vesala's tunes since he died in 1999. A true dedication to him." Iro Haarla (piano, harp, Jeng), Pepa Päivinen (soprano/tenor/baritone saxophones, alto flute).
