I'm always saddened to hear that another great musician has passed away, RIP Harri Marstio.

Sometimes, we in North America tend to forget that there are many very good players elsewhere, and their passings are missed as much as we miss our "local" heroes

Sad news.

RIP

Lovely singing style and tone. RIP

7

So sad. Sounded a lot like Satchmo.

What a great timbre. Hope he didn’t suffer

I loved everything about that video. Reminded me of early Tom Waits.

RIP Harri. Definitely gone too soon.

Very classy song, arrangement, and vocals. I'm not sure how he was able to stand so still throughout this soulful song.

I know he will be missed. Thanks for posting.

I think that's basic Finnish performance from early 80's, no extra movement. Other thing could be, that Mr Marstio was so young and begin in his career, that he is only focusing to sing. The pianist (Pedro Hietanen) in the video saw him singing on the lawn and the pianist ask him to come studio and sing. Rest is history.
