Tapani Rinne celebrates his new album at We Jazz Festival on 3 December


Reedsman Tapani Rinne is probably best known as a leader of the pioneering techno-jazz group RinneRadio whose mix of meditative jazz motifs and electronica has been welcomed with open arms all over the globe. Rinne visits We Jazz Festival to celebrate his forthcoming solo album ”Foghornia”, released on Signature Dark label in October. His new solo work picks up where the previous left off, continuing to experiment with bass clarinet and electronics, diving even deeper into more melancholic depths of dark ambient music.

More additions to the festival program will be announced during the autumn. The additional performance for the Hakola Shop concert will be released on 30 September, and the additional performance for the Kuudes Linja concert 14 October. Visitors for the Superposition Festival will also be revealed during the fall.

The safety and well-being of the audience, performers and staff is a top priority for the organizers of We Jazz Festival. The We Jazz team closely monitors the development of the pandemic situation and will do everything to provide a safe event environment for everybody involved.

Tickets to Helsinki Contemporary are available at Tiketti.

“The downtempo project of Finland’s Tapani Rinne, perhaps the world’s only techno bass clarinetist, is hard to stop listening to… There is something to be gained by melding the organic reed with the cool computer, it is a lonely northern forest sound unheard before now.”
