Date and timeThu 29.7.2021, at 1:00 p.m.
The rare sonic combination of voice and vibraphone encompassed by the virtuosic jazz trio creates a fresh and engaging musical experience.
The band is led by the upright bassist Kaisa Mäensivu who also sings with the trio accompanied by musicians who have significant experience working with vocalists. The drummer Joe Peri has recorded with Tony Bennett and the vibraphonist Severi Pyysalo has worked with Sarah Vaughan. The trio’s repertoire is a fun yet complex compilation of songs, including their own compositions and American jazz standards with cleverly adapted Finnish lyrics by Mäensivu.
