Jussi Reijonen (World Music)

It is said that music does not lie in the notes themselves but between them, and it is exactly in that space where Boston-based Finnish fretless/fretted guitarist and oudist Jussi Reijonen's music thrives and blossoms. His eagerly anticipated debut album, "un", out now on unmusic, has been a lifelong musical journey in the making -- a journey that spans three decades and four continents, and which has taken him from his native Northern Finland to years spent living in the Middle East, East Africa, and now the United States.
