Jartse Tuominen

His band, Jartse Tuominen Group, is formed of the best Finnish musicians. Jartse´s music is instrumental rock with a jazzy flavor. “How to describe his music? Let´s assume that Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Al Di Meola, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Billy Sheehan and Jaco Pastorius were in the audience at a Jartse Tuominen gig. They would certainly recognize aspects of their own music, but they would not be able to keep their butts on the bench.” (Guitar Nine News)

Time to Go single climbed to #1 on Hit-tracks Top100 chart in Netherlands for two weeks and the album has been on playlists on many international radios.
