Koko Jazz Club , Helsinki

Mikko Innanen 10+

10.12. At 21:00

Tickets 20/15 €

Mr. Innanen’s 12-member band had its first performance at Koko Jazz Club in November -12 and after that they have enchanted their audiences in Tampere Jazz Happening, Korppoo Sea Jazz, the Vossa Jazz-festival in Norway as well as the Moers Festival in Germany. Innanen’s strong, multi-faceted compositions give us a peak into the many sides of a saxophonist’s career. They also bring out all the sounds and voices in the 12-man group, also leaving room for improvisation.

In the concert on the 10th of December, Innanen will play songs already familiar from previous gigs. He has also promised to premiere his new megalomaniac piece of music about the ancient Frygians.
