Come to play, sing and listen!

Saxophone player Olli Ojajärvi leads UMO Helsinki Ensemble as a house band at Jazz Musicians’ Association’s Jam Session. Ojajärvi has played in UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra since 2000 and he is known – for example – for his strong solo interpretations. Ojajärvi gets to perform with superb musicians – Peti Gyárfás on piano, Jussi Hovilainen on bass and Jaska Lukkarinen on drums.

The jam session is organised by Jazz Musicians’ Association together with UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra, Jazz Finland (Finnish Jazz Federation), Sibelius Academy Jazz Department, Metropolia University of Applied Sciences and Pop & Jazz Conservatory.

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra is thrilled to be involved with the regularly organised jam sessions that strengthen UMO Helsinki’s connection with freelance musicians and younger jazz talents.

The event is supported by MES (Musiikin edistämissäätiö).
