The event is organized by Scandinavia House.

Finnish group Kari Ikonen Trio joins us for a performance of compositions that have been described as “fresh, subtle, and tickled by gentle surprises” (Downbeat) and “Full of moments of beauty and offbeat explorations” (Something Else Reviews). Pianist, moogist and composer Kari Ikonen is joined with bassist Olli Rantala and drummer Markku Ounaskari for this event, which will present some of their latest original compositions. Kari Ikonen Trio is praised for their original, lively style. Their three albums, Bright (2013), Beauteous Tales and Offbeat Stories (2015) and Wind, Frost & Radiation (2018) on German label Ozella have gained international success, leading to performances at clubs and festivals across Europe, Asia, Australia and the U.S.https://kariikonen.com/

“A wholly original take on the improvising piano trio.” –Dave Foxall, Jazz Journal

“Gorgeously colored by chiming piano percussion, cello-esque bowed bass and shimmering cymbal work, the Kari Ikonen Trio exemplify a distinctly Scandinavian collective work ethic… Ikonen, a former winner of Finland’s Jazz Musician of the Year award, is a serious artist making work with a color and conviction worthy of any of today’s leading European three-pieces.”–All About Jazz
