This 1970s Finnish group was led by two brothers, Pekka Tegelman (guitars, bass, drums) and Jussi Tegelman (drums). Acquiring their cue from Mahavishnu Orchestra, the group performed good if undistinguished jazz fusion. Their eponymous 1st record included keyboardist Jukka Rissanen and was their most prog rock and roll oriented recording. He remaining by enough time the music group documented their sophomore recording, Lahto Matkalle (1976). By that time the group experienced two keyboardists, Jukka Linkola and Peretti Pokki. The band’s last record, Demonnights (1979) was both their most jazzy recording and their least unique, sounding increasingly much like Weather Statement. For the record, the music group added another guitarist, Jari Rissanen, two saxophonists (Heikki Keskinen as well as the popular Juhani Aaltonen), Tuomo Helin (bass), and Jarmo Savolainen (keyboards).
