Haavisto's ensemble band is completed by Johannes Granroth, the winner of the Jazzkukko festival's guitar competition 2021, Severi Sorjonen, one of the best jazz drummers of his generation, and the young keyboard wizard Vili Itäpelto.
The band and album Reflections have been described internationally:
"It merges with great rhythmic implementation, worthy of a Tribal Tech."
"His playing is nimble and diverse, and he’s apt to incorporate some tricks that Percy Jones is known for, such as frequent use of harmonics, though on the whole his playing is a bit closer to the jazz tradition."
"Breathe the spirit of Victor Bailey, Victor Wooten, Jaco Pastorius and Jimmy Haslip".
"The music has influences from both Return to forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Allan Holdsworth..."
"Jukka Haavisto and his band have managed to come up with an album of compositions that feed the soul and the mind in equal proportions, taking on board the best of classic Fusion Jazz, but transporting it to our times. The playing is top notch and the album’s sound warm and welcoming."
