The 2013 Yrjö Award recipient, pianist, keyboardist and composer Kari Ikonen (b.1973) is one of Finland’s most prominent jazz musicians. He is perhaps best known for his own trio and for his international sextet Karikko, as well as for his writing for various ensembles, such as the UMO Jazz Orchestra. He has played with the likes of Lee Konitz, Bob Moses, Ingrid Jensen, Magnus Broo, Vincent Courtois and Ron McClure. His compositions have been honoured internationally, taking first prize in the Julius Hemphill Composition Awards (USA) and in the Italian Scrivere in Jazz.
