Debuting in the scene successfully in 2010 with their first album, Fredator is back with a vengeange on “Rebirth of the Bad”. The second album sees the lizard jazz outfit seek new musical grounds while swinging hard and cooking up no-nonsense latin-tinged jazz with a flame burning hotter and hotter still.

Fredator and his group have mastered the genre of danceable latin jazz. After their debut album, the orchestra shed its skin, gained some new members, and took a whole new direction before publishing their second album Rebirth of the Bad (Suomen Musiikki 2012).

Inside the lizard costume is drummer-pianist Jussi Fredriksson, who is active in numerous orchestras, leads Flame Jazz and Jazz HUG organizations and is the vice chairman of the Finnish Jazz Federation.
