It has always been considered a mission for the Roman label: to go around the world in search of young talent. Chance or insight has brought the CAM JAZZ Presents label to the pages of major magazines worldwide, and has allowed the musicians who have recorded for this series to perform on the most prestigious stages globally. Among the winning bets is, without reservation, the Finnish trio which has caused half of Europe to fall in love with it: the Sun Trio, a group formed by trumpeter Jorma Kalevi Louhivuori, his brother drummer Olavi Louhivuori and bass player Antti Lötjönen. After a brilliant debut with the album "Time Is Now", the band returned to enchant with this new work entitled "Dreams Are True". As in great Scandinavian tradition, the trio weaves varied and fascinating plots, always looking for the perfect sound, but careful however not to sacrifice melody and lyricism in favor of experimentation. Sprinkle some electronics, wise and never over the top, which offer unique colors to the varied and surprising canvas of the Sun Trio. With their power of awareness, the Louhivuori brothers make this group a cosmopolitan one, opening new scenarios in a language that, starting from the lessons of Northern European jazz, finds uniqueness in the mindfulness and awareness that good music knows no barriers, much less genres.
