It has been 27 years since the release of Jukka Linkola’s album The Tentet. Tentet made several concert tours in Finland and abroad in the 90’s. Now Linkola is back with Tentet’s music at Savoy JAZZFest’s live stream concert.

Composer, professor Jukka Linkola is one of Finland’s most recognised musicians. The Finnish Jazz Federation awarded Linkola the Yrjö Prize already in 1979, and in 1997 his band EQ won Jazz-Emma. Linkola has won many international composition contests, e.g. Paris Opera Screen as well as the Cannes Midem Awards. He has received two Jussi Awards for his film music.

Linkola’s Octet was one of the most praised ensembles in the 1970s Finnish jazz field. In early 1990s the band shrank into a quintet, and a couple of years later expanded to The Tentet. Tentet was featured by several young jazz musicians who rose to the front line of Finnish jazz scene in the 1980s. The band released their album The Tentet in 1994. Tentet’s rhythmically lush music balances between lyricism and drama, also flirting with funk and latino rhythms.

At Savoy JAZZFest, Linkola’s Tentet is formed by an Ensemble picked from the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. There are several musicians from the original line-up.

 

Line-up:
Jouni Järvelä & Manuel Dunkel, saxophones
Kasperi Sarikoski, trombone
Teemu Mattsson, trumpet
Vesa Ojaniemi, bass
Markku Kanerva, guitar
Mongo Aaltonen, percussions
Jaska Lukkarinen, drums
Seppo Kantonen, keys
Jukka Linkola, piano, conductor

Duration about 70 minutes.
