Sax man Timo Lassy presents his new trio formation with a special guest for this event only. On drums, the band features Reiska Laine, a veritable legend of Finnish jazz. On the bass, Ville Herrala. He’s great as well. Timo’s trio sound is currently taking steps towards a deeper, more darkly toned expression. Some would call it “spiritual jazz”.
The opening act at Kuudes Linja is all about free expression and improvisation. Norwegian drummer Paal Nilssen-Love joins forces with guitarist Raoul Björkenheim and both of them are household names in the European free jazz and experimental music scene. If you have heard these guys performing together with the fiery Scorch Trio, you know they are the real deal.
Please note that the age limit for this event is 18.
