[Video] Verneri Pohjola – Live at Porin Teatteri – Pori Jazz Festival 2012

I had posted a video by legendary Finnish jazz-prog bassist Pekka Pohjola recently. While doing my usual stumble across social media, I came across another Pohjola, this one being Verneri. As it turns out, Verneri is the son of the late bassist, and is a fine trumpet player in his own right. Look for big things out of this man in the future.

Look for his latest release, Bullhorn, over at his Bandcamp site.
