Takatonic is a small group founded by saxophonist Teemu Takanen in 2008. It comprises of five Finnish jazz musicians, each of which are a top talent in their own field. The band will play mostly Takanen’s own music, in which chord harmonies and rhythm are strongly in line with jazz tradition. The only element maintaining chord harmony in the band is a section of three wind instruments and a bass.

Their debut album Takatonic! came out in the summer of 2010.
