Sami Linna Quartet is the first band to take the stage at We Jazz 2019. It’s great to have it like that, because he is a good friend of our collective and just released a fantastic new album on Timmion Records. Check out the dope cover artwork! Linna’s quartet includes Finnish A-listers and the great US drummer Dana Hall, so this might be a rare occasion to hear the band live in Helsinki.
Oddarrang’s new album “Hypermetros” is out on the UK based Edition Records and it promises to outgrow the monumental previous albums of this fabulous ensemble. That is not easily done, but they can do it! Live, Oddarrang presents some slowly evolving, cinematic music where the cinema is inside your mind. This is the exclusive Helsinki release show for the new album.
