The hotly-tipped jazz trio Mopo released their debut album "Jee!" by Helsinki's Texicalli Records. Mopo (moped) is an energetic outburst of jazz drawing from punk and the nature of Finland.
Mopo was founded upon sheer intuition, at a bar in Helsinki's "Vallila" quarters. The trio's sound and stage praesens is all based on friendship and mutual trust among the three talented musicians. This natural emotional strenght offers an explanation for the overtly enthusiastic reactions of the listeners, common at early Mopo gigs. Energy breeds energy.
Mopo was also noted by the jury of the Finnish leg of the Young Nordic Jazz Comets band contest, where Mopo walked away with the first prize and a slot at the Nordic finals.
