Klaus Suonsaari

drummer/ composer/ arranger/ teacher


Today, there is a continuing internationalization of the music as more tangibly advanced by musicians from all over the world getting together to solidify and advance the jazz tradition. Klaus Suonsaari (b. 1959) learned from that tradition and eventually crossed the Atlantic to first study, and then become an active contributor to the music as a sideman and, now as a leader-composer-arranger. His story illustrates the power of jazz to reach out and capture one's heart and mind, no matter where the music is heard.
