Located in the Vallila region of Helsinki, Ääniwalli is arguably the most unique club space in Helsinki at the moment. While there, we aim to create a something resembling an over-sized living room. Our special project on Wednesday night is based on the courage of the most sought-after bass player in Finland, ANTTI LÖTJÖNEN, who will perform with three groups at once. The bands play both together and separately, while Lötjönen takes the concept of musical multitasking onto a new level. NILS WOGRAM ROOT 70 WITH STRINGS will add some German/New Zealand vibe into the operation. The top-notch ensemble of NILS WOGRAM (trombone), HAYDEN CHISHOLM (saxophone), MATT PENMAN (bass) and JOCHEN RUECKERT (drums) plus strings is fresh and swinging all the way through. The band is a coherent seven-piece which goes way beyond simply putting together the jazz quartet and the string section, as witnessed on their excellent 2013 album “Riomar”. The band, based in various different locations, tours rarely, so this is truly a unique chance of catching them live. See below for a documentary short film about the making of “Riomar”. The Nils Wogram Root 70 With Strings’ performance is preseneted with the kind assistance of Goethe-Institut Finnland. Danke schön.
Please note: There’s a combo ticket available at Tiketti which includes this concert plus the afterparty starting right after it around the corner at Jemma HKI. JIMI TENOR JAZZ À LA KARMA and WE JAZZ DJs perform there.
!!! There is a “Modern Jazz Second Line” to Ääniwalli from the corner of Sturenkatu and Mäkelänkatu (outside of Sture Jazz Bar) at 6.30 pm. Members of the “We Jazz Rising Star 2014″ Mikko Sarvanne Hip Company will play live as we walk from the meeting location to Ääniwalli. This is a one-of-a-kind thing, and everyone’s free to join in. !!!
