We Jazz

with Espiritu Libre

In July, We Jazz invites another new jazz act to make their debut at mbar. This time around, the duo of trumpet player Verneri Pohjola and drummer Tatu Rönkkö will take the stage for the first time. Both are highly regarded and internationally relevant artists, who have their own vision of jazz and beyond.

Verneri Pohjola is currently one of the best known and most sought-after Finnish jazz artists. His new LP "Bullhorn" is making waves around the globe and Pohjola's work with his own quartet and with several other projects completes the mosaic of a multitalented musician constantly looking for new means of expression. Tatu Rönkkö is a also a "searcher". He currently resides in Berlin, plays drums in Elifantree and Efterklang, and continuously challenges himself with new projects such as "I Play Your Kitchen", which literally takes place in people's kitchen's, and solo performances. Together, Pohjola and Rönkkö seem like the perfect fit. Their music will not be a combination of the two talented artists but a whole new, coherent "other" – a musical entity which happens now but belongs to the future.

We Jazz DJs will offer the framework for the event, picking the best of the best jazz vinyl for you, dear listener and/or dancer.

This event is part of the We Jazz club series

This summer, Helsinki's top purveyors of quality jazz bring four extraordinary sessions to mbar. Each of the four Tuesday nights will feature an A-list live act plus We Jazz DJs doing what they do best – serving you some raw jazz on vinyl.
