In the 80s and 90s, Vesala recorded several albums of his own compositions exhibiting a unique style that combines jazz, classical music, tango, and folk music with his own group Sound and Fury, which was an ensemble of about ten players comprised mostly of Vesala's students.

Prominent players in Sound and Fury included saxophonists Jorma Tapio and Pepa Päivinen , guitarists Raoul Björkenheim and Jimi Sumen, and harpist and keyboardist Iro Haarla who was Vesala's wife.
