Teppo Mäkynen is not only a virtuoso drummer but also a talented composer and a true visionary of music. As UMO and Mäkynen join their forces, we are guaranteed a true Mäkynen extravaganza.

The programme consists mainly of brand-new big band arrangements of Mäkynen’s compositions. In addition to them, we will hear carefully chosen bits from his big band portfolio. The drummer’s groove and spectacular mastery of ride cymbal is certainly met with some foot tapping. Mäkynen’s use of electronic equipment makes the live concert experience even more exciting.

The Finnish jazz folk know Teppo Mäkynen from the groups The Five Corners Quintet, Jo Stance and Teddy’s West Coasters, to name a few. He is also a sought-after record producer and DJ in the field of Finnish jazz.

Note! The concert at G Livelab on Friday 6th of April was streamed and can be seen also afterwards at Helsinkikanava (Helsinki Channel).
