Number one Jazz Club in Helsinki scene presents:

Alexi Tuomarila/ Lithium

Lithium is new Finnish-Portugalish orchestra which published their debut album RED by Dutch record label called Challenge Records.

”RED proves not only one but many statements – that the Jazz is still alive and very well, that no matter where we are this universal language will unite us, that it’s possible to innovate and maintain the tradition in full 2017.

All of this is done here at the highest level. Bravo stuff!” -Chico Pinheiro

Lithium may be my new favorite group… Each instrument seemed to move on its own, in its own space. In some magical way, however, they complement each other”
– Helsingin Sanomat, FI
”Guitarist André Fernandes is becoming a signifigant international player in jazz”
– All About Jazz

”Make a note: Alexi Tuomarila is one next big deals on jazz piano”
