Is It", recorded in 1972, was the fourth album released by Finnish pianist / composer Heikki Sarmanto, who was already
considered a "veteran" of the modern Finnish Jazz scene. The Big Band assembled for this recording is a bona fide
Who's Who of Finnish Jazz which includes Eero Koivistoinen, Juhani Aaltonen and many others who were leaders of their own
ensembles. This is European Jazz at its best, taking the essence of the Jazz spirit and combining it flawlessly with other
musical sources to create a perfect amalgam. It remains untouched by the tides of time, a true classic.
