Concerts are slowly starting to happen, and I’ll be conducting Oulu All Star Big Band in April, and Air Force Big Band in May. In Oulu we are doing a Gil Evans/Miles Davis tribute with trumpeter Jukka Eskola, and with the Air Force BB we are doing my Jazz Noir concert in Jyväskylä and Tampere in early May.
Also, finally, after two years of moving and cancelling, we should have three concerts of my music with the Kokkola Youth Wind orchestra, together with soprano Mari Palo and Jukka Eskola. The concerts are mid-March in Kokkola, Ylivieska and Pietarsaari.
We had a chance to document a couple of my wind ensemble pieces with Lohja City Orchestra’s wind ensemble, two videos below.
