We Jazz Reworks Vol. 1 presents Timo Kaukolampi's reinterpretation of the first issues of We Jazz Records.

We Jazz Records is delighted to share the first edition of its new series of reworks. The aim is to invite some of the label’s favourite artists to take a fresh look at album releases with the interval of 10 full length album releases. In other words, the invited artist has complete freedom to choose any sample material from their allocated range of ten We Jazz Records albums, with no artistic limits of what they should do with the material. Each artist will then create a new musical piece based on the sample material and whatever instrumentation they wish to add to it.

The series’ first guest is Finnish producer Timo Kaukolampi who goes by his last name only when creating deep and mobile soundscapes, that never fail to evoke emotions and thoughts in the listener. Kaukolampi's task at hand was to dive deep into the first 10 We Jazz LPs, ranging from Bowman Trio released in 2016 to the 2018 release Alder Ego II.

With the initial edition of any series comes the freedom and necessity of defining a new direction. Kaukolampi premiered his piece at the We Jazz Festival back in 2018 and developed the ideas further during several studio sessions. The finished product opens things up with a bang and shows the value in going deep. Kaukolampi manages to distill new music from the source material, twisted and stretched into dimensions beyond what is usually there.

We Jazz invited the visionary graphic designer (and K-X-P drummer) Tomi Leppänen to "rework" the graphics of the source albums to construct the base of the design.
