Wow, -TH, nice post!

Can't help wondering if this Joonathan Rautio is related in any way to another Finnish saxophone phenom, Joonathan Rautiola. The latter Joonathan is definitely a rising star in the classical saxophone world!

AFAIK They are not related. They just share the same first name (Joonatan) and their last names are very similar but different.

Joonatan Rautiola (classical saxophonist) is my good friend's cousin and I heard him play at my friend's wedding some months ago. Frankly I've never liked classical saxophone playing but when I heard him playing in church I was really impressed!!! He's a monster player too!

Not related? An amazing coincidence with their names, then. Considering how well they both play, I'm thinking of legally changing my name to Joonathan...

I realize that this post is old, but it's time to revive it. I discovered Joonatan Rautio while searching the internet for more Michael Brecker transcriptions. I found I believe a Master's Thesis by Rautio on the harmonic devices of Michael Brecker and that led me to looking up Rautio on Youtube. I really enjoy his work with his quartet and also with Ketola Rewired. Now I have a favorite saxophone player form Finland. Here's a link to one of my favorite pieces by Ketola Rewired:
