      Founded in 1997 by six Finnish singers, vocal ensemble Rajaton has fast made its mark in the international a cappella scene with its fresh approach to choral music. The group is distinguished by brilliance and ensemble virtuosity coupled with warmth and richness in sound that can only be described as boundless (rajaton).
      The voice is boundless.



      Un-Wishing Well
      The Lark In The Clear Air
      We Walk In A Fog

      Rajaton is a world-class Finnish vocal jazz septet, and this is their second CD (their first, "Nova," is also excellent). They sing jazz renditions of their own and others' original compositions, Finnish folk songs and poetry put to music. The two Finnish folk songs, "Armahan kulku" and "Kaipaava" are sung in Finnish, the rest are in flawless English. Following the tradition of brilliant Scandinavian vocal jazz groups, Rajaton's sound is bright and clean, harmonically complex, spirited and perfect. The colorful liner notes contain all the words, and lovely photos of the group. Eleven songs: "Butterfly," "Un-Wishing Well," "The Lark In the Clear Air," "We Walk In a Fog," Lennon/McCartney's "Lady Madonna," "Dobbin's Flowery Vale," "Summer Song," "Poison Tree," "You Can't Stop Me," and the two folk songs. A breath of fresh, jazzy air from Finland !
