Two friends, both Jazz-Emma winners, exceed expectations and launch a new compact ensemble with their new album.
Two Finnish jazz stars, saxophonist Timo Lassy and drummer Teppo Mäkynen combine their assets with new We Jazz Records duo-record. Sax & drums -duo relies on strong co-playing and visionary production of Teppo "Teddy Rok" Mäkynen, which sheds a tint of electronics to an acoustic jazz duo. The record sometimes moves in abstract waters and sometimes roasts in 4/4-groove. The core of all is joy and naturalness of playing music.
Lassy and Mäkynen are both the most active and appreciated Finnish jazzers. With their new album, they exceed expectations and launch a combat combo, that will certainly be successfull in the concert stages. Even though Lassy and Mäkynen have played together in several ensebles before, this is the first time they are heard as a duo in an album.
