Case Kämäräinen

What is the case here? Some people say it’s only the 90’s modern post-bop jazz spiced with a little hint of expressionism, some people just say it’s the case of Tomi Kämäräinen. The real thing in this case though is the unique personality of this Finnish drummer, who is presenting his new quartet with his own perspective on music by combining lightness and grace of modern jazz timbre with experiencing Copenhagen in vast and various pictures.



Infant Eyes

Their compelling rhythms and joyful improvisation will take you away. Trios music includes their own compositions and covers of e.g. Joe Henderson and Pat Metheny.

Surrounding Circus

Combination of Scandinavian melancholy and modern drum rhythms makes Surrounding Circus a this day ensemble. Quotations of John Coltrane and swedish Paatos paint the big picture and the personality comes from the vibraphone that plays the lead melodies. Huge bass lines are played with synth bass, but the ensemble mainly honors acoustic music and improvised expression.
