In the spotlight of this concert is one of the essential post-bop jazz albums, The Blues and the Abstract Truth, released in 1961.

American saxophonist and composer Oliver Nelson (1932–1975) gathered together the greatest jazz musicians of his time: Eric Dolphy, Paul Chambers, Freddie Hubbard, Bill Evans, George Barrow and Roy Haynes. The acclaimed septet album is known of its unique arrangements and the opening track Stolen Moments quickly became a jazz standard. As the name implies, the album’s compositions are based on the structures and moods of blues. Now the album is interpreted by UMO Helsinki Ensemble, which is a smaller ensemble picked from UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s sections.

Duration about 75 min.

Mikko Pettinen, trumpet
Jouni Järvelä, saxophone
Manuel Dunkel, saxophone
TBA, baritone saxophone
Alexi Tuomarila, piano
Antti Lötjönen, bass
Joonas Riippa, drums
