“From the zone where jazz-rock intersects with some more artful and hard-to-categorize notions, Raoul Björkenheim eCsTaSy is one of the more intriguing “electric” jazz bands out there. And the leader-guitarist allows for measured doses of “out there” moments, dissonance and creative disorder, to enliven the guitar-tenor saxophone melody lines and changeable rhythmic strategies. Funk, free play, Ornette-ishness, some kind of Finnish swamp-fusion and the leader’s raw, searching guitar work grace the band’s unique sound.” - Gilad Hekselman, Downbeat Magazine eCsTaSy has toured Finland and Europe during its eleven years, and the first two CDs were nominated for best jazz recording of the year 2014 and 2015 at the Finnish Emma Awards (Finnish “Grammy”).
