Stepping ahead, together

The first of the two Finnish groups to appear at this year’s Jazzahead showcase is Joonas Haavisto Trio who have been playing together for more than ten years. While the instrumentation may be conventional, their approach is original and confident and leans on a no-nonsense take on what may perhaps be called ‘Scandinavian freshness’. Seamless communication between the band members is an indispensable part of their playing philosophy.
