Jussi Fredriksson Trio

FINLAND

Pianist/composer Jussi Fredriksson, a key player in the active Finnish jazz scene, released his new trio album “!”. The new album highlights his ability to write energetic and forward-thinking pieces for the trio in the tradition of such minimalist jazz masters as Ahmad Jamal and Thelonious Monk. That being said, the band is on their own path, making music which is distinctively their own. Fredriksson has composed the music in Paris, where he spent a month a year before the release.
“The sidewalks and galleries of Paris can be heard in the music. This is the classic Paris period every artist has at some point”, J. Fredriksson says.

August 3rd, concert starts at 9:00 p.m. near Nida lighthouse
