Looking forward to my gigs in July and August in Finland, Japan, Estonia, Russia and Italy. I’ll be playing in small clubs, Festivals, churches and castles! A few studio sessions are also to be made.

2019 will be the year when I celebrate my 50 years on this planet. I will celebrate it by doing many concerts and with a couple of new CD’s as well.

I’ll started new projects with guitarists Sangyeon Park from Korea, Andrei Ryabov from Russia and with Lorenzo Cominoli from Italy. But naturally I will keep the ’old ones’ also alive.

Band projects will be my large ensemble doing the Graduale Aboense material and also bringing to life my old Quartet with Swedish saxophonist Fredrik Nordström.

It was a great pleasure to know Claes Andersson personally and I’m proud to be a part of his tribute concert with singer Julia Korkman on the 31st of August in Satasoitto, Harjavalta.

In September I’ll start teaching again at the Jyväskylä and Oulu Universities of Applied Sciences and happy to inform you that my dear college Teemu Viinikainen is joining me starting from this fall onward in Jyväskylä.
