Jaska Lukkarinen Trio feat. Raoul Björkenheim
Jaska Lukkarinen – drs, Jussi Kannaste – sax, Antti Lötjönen – db, Sebastian Studnitzky (GER) – trp
Jaska Lukkarinen Trio has climbed to the absolute top of Finnish jazz over the recent years. Their intuitive and reactive interplay has plenty to do with them sticking together since they started in 2007, touring actively and releasing three albums. The last one that came out in 2017, featured Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen’s music that was originally composed for Dalindèo and Ricky-Tick Big Band. Summer Bay Jazz sees also a special guest appearance by the magical electric guitar wizard Raoul Björkenheim.
