When Jimi Tenor and UMO collaborate, usually something epic happens.

Terra Exotica is a completely new work composed by Jimi Tenor, inspired by nearby forests and the seashore, Japanese film-era film music, and bands like Sun Ran and Salah Ragab.

– Terra Exotica is quite an exotic entity, which I have composed specifically for UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. In addition to the influences brought by Sun Ran and Salah Ragab, the pieces also have a touch of blues and even swing, Jimi Tenor promises.

The live stream concert is conducted by Ed Partyka.

Jimi Tenor & UMO: Mysterium Magnum (2015) on Spotify 

Mysterium Magnum album release party at Aapelin baari, Kontula in Helsinki, September 2015.

 

Jimi Tenor is a Finnish composer and multi-instrumentalist – and a guarantee of original art, whether it is electronic music created as a solo project or a jazz function made with a band. He sings, plays saxophones, flutes, keyboards and self-built instruments. In addition to his music career, an internationally successful multi-actor is e.g. photographed, directed short films and designed clothes.
