Biography

Kari Ikonen Trio's third album was released in April 2018. The album s full of powerful expression and strong feelings.

Kari Ikonen Trio is widely known for fearless desire to experiment and strong energy. The new album takes the listener to the darker side of the soul and closer to deep thoughts, strong feelings and powerful expression.

Wind, Frost & Radiation is trio’s third studio album, the first one the trio releases with this ensemble, after bassist Olli Rantala joined  pianist Kari Ikonen and drummer Markku Ounaskari couple years ago.  The trio's energetic and barrier-breaking style is taken even further than before and again the members prove they are fearless in front of the emotional unknown.
