Pepa Päivinen & Good Romans
Pepa Päivinen – reeds, fl, Ilari Filander – gtr, Jussi Miettola – drs
The Yrjö Jazz Prize -awarded reedsman Pertti “Pepa” Päivinen and duo Good Romans invite us to join them on an adventure in the uncharted landscapes of free jazz, without a map but with steady steps. Later this year, the power trio will follow their two acclaimed albums Ghost of a Dog and Tadpoles with a third full-length recording. In addition – or even instead of! – aggressive free jazz, they will treat us to carefully woven textures and mature playing with no gimmicks.
