We Jazz

with Espiritu Libre

The June edition of We Jazz at mbar presents the never-before-heard quartet Lukkarinen/Lötjönen+. The band develops spontaneously on stage around drummer Jaska Lukkarinen and bassist Antti Lötjönen, who invite organ player Seppo Kantonen and saxophone player Mikko Innanen to join them on this very special occasion.

Jaska Lukkarinen is the drummer of Dalindèo, Ricky-Tick Big Band, Jaska Lukkarinen Trio, plus a bunch of other A-list Finnish ensembles. Antti Lötjönen on bass also plays on Lukkarinen's own trio, and countless other top jazz bands such as Timo Lassy Band, Verneri Pohjola Quartet, Ilmiliekki Quartet, and more. He also leads his own ensemble Antti Lötjönen Quartet East. Seppo Kantonen and Mikko Innanen are both internationally noted jazzmen and together, the impromptu quartet will be brimming with innovation, talent and musical depth.

We Jazz DJs will present a potent mix of raw jazz on vinyl before and after the show.

This event is part of the We Jazz club series
