The concert recording of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra, Ringa Manner, Alpo Nummelin and Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen from the Huvila tent of the Helsinki Festival from August 2022 is now out! Watch the concert recording on the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s website, mobile application and YouTube channel. The concert recording is free, but you can buy a 5/10/15 € ticket at UMO’s channels to support the orchestra.

The concert features songs from Ringa Manner’s solo project The Hearing and the Ruusut band as new and fresh arrangements for the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. Electronics, effects and improvisations mixed with a classic big band sound give Ringa Manner’s electropop its distinct colour. Percussion wizard Alpo Nummelin masters the electrosounds. The orchestra is led by Valtteri Laurell Pöyhönen, who also wrote half of the arrangements.

The concert recording is produced by the digital team of UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. Duration: 75 minutes.
