We Jazz

with Espiritu Libre

The We Jazz Summer Sessions at mbar begin with a live performance by the 11-piece Mikko Sarvanne Hip Company, who will celebrate the release of their debut album. The ensemble is a collection of some of Finland's top young jazz talent and their live shows display Sarvanne's knack at creating memorable compositions, the band's effortless team play and their sheer joy of playing together.

Mikko Sarvanne Hip Company was awarded the "We Jazz Rising Star" accolade in December 2014.

We Jazz DJs Matti Nives and Eero Löyttyjärvi are dedicated jazz vinyl collectors who dig for that raw kind of jazz which is filled with genuine emotion. The music spans nearly 100 years of the genre's past, present and future, with emphasis on the musical quality only. If it works, it's in the bag, be it a long-lost rare private pressing, a celebrated jazz classic or a new jazz release hot off the press. You can also hear Löyttyjärvi and Nives on the radio, hosting Bassoradio's "Lauantaijatsit" and Radio Helsinki's "Jazz kiinnostaa", respectively.

This event is part of the We Jazz club series
