10 May 2019, Växjö, Sweden
11 May 2019, Jönköping, Sweden
To celebrate its 15th birthday, Reunion Big Band will travel across waters to Sweden to play some fantastic Finnish jazz. In Växjö, our concert is organised together with the local Växjö Jazz Orchestra.
In this tour, we will play a set of modern Finnish jazz. The songs are composed by e.g. Eero Koivistoinen, Jukka Linkola and Vellu Halkosalmi. The set will also include our exclusive song United!
Our soloist is musician Martti Vesala, who is also Reunion Big Band's leader. Described as “a highly talented young man” by All About Jazz, Helsinki-based trumpeter and composer Vesala is one of the up-and-coming musicians in Finnish jazz, having won acclaim for his instrumental and compositional skills.
The tour is supported by Svenska Kulturfonden, Konstsamfundet, William Thurings Foundation and Foundation Emilie and Rudolf Gesellius Fund.
