Biography

When you learn from the best, there comes a day when the apprentice becomes the master. Mattsson has spent his life around the best jazz musicians in Finland - Jari Perkiömäki, Jukkis Uotila, Sonny Heinilä and Jukka Perko - first as a student at the Sibelius Academy jazz department and then as a hired hand in numerous productions as a freelancer.

His self titled album, Teemu Mattsson, is the natural development on his career and pushes the envelope of Finnish jazz traditions. His quintet is a blend of talented young guns and some oldtimers that have been around a block or two.
