2016 repress, originally released 2009; 2LP version. "Marks a significant shift in emphasis in this acclaimed musician's work, reflecting a renewed interest in jazz and acoustic performance -- Tummaa is far more organic and live-sounding than anything he's done before. Ripatti is a genuine musical maverick. Tummaa marks a return to Ripatti's first love of performing as a percussionist. The album essentially features a live trio -- Ripatti, Argentine musician Lucio Capece on clarinet and saxophone, and acclaimed Scottish soundtrack composer and arranger Craig Armstrong on piano and Rhodes. Ripatti set the tone, recording his drum parts and then inviting Capece to his studio to improvise alongside the drums. Armstrong offered recordings of pure solo piano playing he had made for the project. From these two sound sources, Ripatti began composing and arranging, and wrote a whole suite of music. The results are jaw-dropping."
