Originally from Tampere, Jarno Tikka is a tenor saxophonist doing his masters thesis at Sibelius Academy.
He got into jazz music at the age of 16 and started practicing with alto saxophone, but turning 18 and getting a tenor saxophone was a life changing experience for him.
Jarno has a certain intensive take on playing and he likes to take risks. He loves the tradition of jazz music and from there he has been able to create his own voice with flavours from swing era's smoking deepness to spiritual intensive brightness.
