WE JAZZ DJs

Come Friday, our jazz installation will take over the main space at Ääniwalli. The very personal sounding trio ELIFANTREE will commence the night with presenting their new music. The Finnish jazz legends OLLI AHVENLAHTI and EERO KOIVISTOINEN will perform their compositions with a group specially assembled for this occasion. The “3G” stands for three generations of jazzmen and the quintet features TIMO LASSY on sax, TEEMU ÅKERBLOM on bass and SAMI NUMMELA on drums. This is what first-rate Finnish jazz sounded, sounds and will sound like. PHRONESIS is a gem of European jazz and its an absolute thrill to be able to present their Helsinki debut at We Jazz. Led by the Danish bass player JASPER HØIBY, the group is a mainstay on tastemaker jazz magazine covers across the globe. Their sound is very energetic, dynamic and melodic, and they are taking the concept of modern piano trio into new driections. Our money is on them being the “next big thing” in European jazz. We recommend a listen of their excellent new album “Life to Everything” and a look at the video below.

“A live album is exactly just the way to get the current Phronesis message across, and this is a powerful one.” – THE GUARDIAN on Phronesis’ “Life to Everything”

Talking about classics of Finnish jazz, here’s two which are hard to beat: “Grandma’s Rockin’ Chair” by Ahvenlahti and “Odysseus” by Koivistoinen. Oh, baby!!!
