Sointi Jazz Orchestra is a newish group, formed by young professional musicians and led by composer-arranger Rasmus Soini.

Soini, a Savonlinna native, formed the nearly 20-member group in 2013 to have an orchestra to realise his musical ideas. The fact that Sointi Jazz Orchestra is composed of freelance musicians makes it a rare phenomenon in the Finnish jazz scene. Despite its size Soini does not want to define the orchestra as a conventional big band, rather, he wants to highlight their aim to approach big band music from a fresh angle, and his own philosophy to compose music where each player’s personality can be heard.

This method, advocated by such greats as Duke Ellington and Maria Schneider, has been received well by the members, and the group has established itself in a short time.

SJO celebrates its brand new release at Koko Jazz Club!
