Dalindeo are Finland's most famous jazz sextet and they recently dropped the enormously successful fourth album Slavic Souls. Described by their own bandleader, Valtteri Laurell Poyhonen, as sounding like a 'surf-jazz-tango-extravaganza', the album fused modern jazz with traditional Finnish Tango music and easy listening (informed by traditional Nordic and Slavic folk songs). So not exactly X Factor then. The album also marked a more melancholic turn in style, and here the title track sounds like a sassy Dick Dale on an old skool European journey. Mr Bird however adds some light with his perky shuffle-house rework. Slick!
