Timo Lassy Band feat. Joyce Elaine Yuille

Timo Lassy is one of the leading artists in the vivid Helsinki jazz scene.

The composer and sax player was recently noted as a "Rising Star" in the veritable jazz bible Downbeat, and his quintet ensemble, the Timo Lassy Band, was dubbed "one of Europe's sharpest bands" by The Sunday Times in the UK. Hot on the heels of the fourth Lassy LP to date, "Live With Lassy" (Schema 2014), the band has taken their no‐nonsense cooking session on the road with remarkable results.

Constantly selling out shows in his native Finland, Lassy is on the verge of becoming a force to be reckoned with on the international jazz circuit as well. Timo Lassy Band includes members of several hard‐hitting and well‐proven ensembles, most notably The Five Corners Quintet, the most successful Finnish jazzoufit to date and also the alma mater of Lassy himself. Live, the Timo Lassy Band excels in getting into the mood of hard‐swinging jazz with gusto galore. The band is brimming with innovation, making this music very much "the art of now". No gimmicks needed here, this jazz is hot.

The quintet is accompanied by New York born vocalist Joyce Elaine Yuille. Yuille's vocal style, sultry wittiness and on stage energy is sure to capture the attention of any and everyone. Yuille's and Lassy's collaboration started last year, and they shared the stage at We Jazz 2013 festival in Helsinki. If you didn't catch them then, this is not to be missed!
