KalevIi Hämäläinen Group’s debut album, “First Days of Summer,” is one one will likely end up just listening to as it draws listeners in, losing oneself in the music. At the time of its release, the world has been stricken by the pandemic, and First Days of Summer has provided an effective antidote to the sad reality of isolation. Thankfully, this album from the Finnish fusion musicians is a breezy and refreshing blast of summery jazz that effortlessly removes one from the here and now, and transports listeners to a happy place.
