Mikael Katajamäki, Timo Pratskin: Balance - Labyrinth - Ultra Rare Jazz Fusion From Finland

This is ultra-rare fusion from Finland from a nearly impossible to find release called Balance. I was sent a copy for a review many years ago. I thought I would share a track from the release called "Labyrinth". This is quality jazz fusion from 2000.

If you are the owner/performer/producer of this material and object to this video being on YouTube, please contact me and I will quickly remove it. It is only uploaded here to promote the musicians and their art. Thanks.

  1. Hello,

    Nice to see a review of our CD from 20 years ago! Glad you liked it!

    My name is Timo Vuoppola, I played the drums on this CD and wrote 2 of the tunes.

    I just wanted to let you know that there are 33 copies left of the Balance CD. These are the very last copies. Feel free to write back in case there is any interest.

    Also, I’ve been doing music ever since, and, if interested, you can check that out here:


    All the best,
