Timo Lassy & Ricky-Tick Big Band Brass (FI)

According to Timo Lassy, it is unnecessary to mystify jazz. The most important thing is a good flair and mood. It is great, of course, if one also possesses the melodic themes and deep harmonies that Timo Lassy has always been blessed with. Jazz was originally dance music, and it is also about how the musicians can create an astonishing amount of energy on stage that the audience can absorb and project towards each other.

With Lassy's new Moves album, Latin rhythms combine admirably with the cool and even erotic soul jazz of the 50s and 60s. The album sums up Lassy's career, and it creates a musical image of a time when men had collars and straight ties and women laughed. In addition to the Timo Lassy Band, also on stage are Ricky-Tick Big Band Brass, who contribute to the breadth and depth of Lassy´s sound and give the music cinematic qualities.
