Tero Saarti

b. 1971

The funkiest trumpeter in Finland! A long-time member of the UMO Jazz Orchestra, Tero Saarti belongs to the small number of trumpeters who can make jazz alive and kicking without an artificial technical performance. Saarti’s trumpet and flugelhorn simply groove. Saarti has been spotted playing in hot club gigs with, among others, the jazz-funk band Groove Connection. The mystical wind instrumentalist T-Roy from the exhilarating funk combo, Eternal Erection, also resembles him closely…

Saarti joined UMO in 1993, just in time to take part in the tour of UMO and Natalie Cole a year later. Another significant tour was that of UMO and Manhattan Transfer in 1996. Like many other UMO musicians, Saarti studied, first, at Helsinki Pop and Jazz Conservatory and, later, at Sibelius Academy. He has enough depth and compassion to interpret “more serious” music in addition to club music. Good examples of this are him taking part in the Nordic “a Tribute to Lars Gullin” tour and performing on Kari Ikonen’s album, “Karikko” (Fiasko 2001) as well as on UMO’s 2005 album, “Sauna palaa!”

Saarti’s projects include bands like Riku Niemi Orchestra, Jussi Fredriksson Busy Turtles,  Antti Rissanen Jukebox Band, Sofia Finnilä, Annimaria Rinne & quintet, Vaigla-Saarti-Vaigla, Espoo Big Band and Koko Jazz Orchestra.
