An American, a Cuban, and three Finns stay up all night in a studio in Helsinki and record an album in their common language, jazz. The Cuban, Arturo Sandoval, is a trumpeter of astonishing gifts. He idolizes the American, Dizzy Gillespie, who played a central role in revolutionizing a music that spread throughout the world, even to a remote section capable of accompanying world-class soloists. To a Finland Station, a title paradoxically evocative of Leninism, is a monument to the international benefits of the musical democracy that is jazz.
