Rebirth of the Bad is the sophomore album of the quirky jazz band, Fredator.
Fredator returns with a brand new album, Rebirth of the Bad. Led by the chameleonic drummer Jussi Fredriksson, alias Fredator, the group both charmed and perplexed audiences by their debut, Bad Jazz. The follow-up sees Fredator take their groovy, Latin-influenced one step further and break into the big leagues of Finnish jazz once and for all.
Despite bearing a certain likeness to comics, Fredator's vision comes true through the effort of Finnish top artists. Fredriksson's able crew is composed of trumpeter Jorma Kalevi Louhivuori of the acclaimed SUN Trio and Ricky-Tick Big Band; promising vibeist, Panu Savolainen; bassist Eero Tikkanen of Auteur Jazz and trio Mopo; colourful saxophonist Joakim Berghäll and veteran percussionist Abdissa "Mamba" Assefa.
