Jussi Lehtonen is one of the most sought-after jazzdrummers on the Scandinavian scene, and for a good reason: his choices behind the kit always serve the music. He also possesses a profound knowledge of the tradition, combined with a superb control of the instrument.

Koko Jazz Club proudly presents drummer and composer Jussi Lehtonen and his blazing band in this record release concert! After the praised debut album “Firstborn” Lehtonen brings along the same gentlemen for the new release “Move On” (Svart Records).

Here’s what Dave Liebman has to say about the new album:

Playing with Jussi over the years has been a wonderful experience, watching him expand and grow as a drummer, but especially as a composer. The writing here is superb covering a variety of styles with great playing by the band. Lyricism is abundant as is fire and ice. I know this rhythm section well and they are world class, even beyond. My compliments to saxophonist Joonatan Rautio for his wonderful musicianship and flexibility handling the material. GREAT MUSIC!!”
