Olavi Louhivuori ”The Net of Indra“ (FI/SE/NO)
Master drummer Olavi Louhivuori’s ”The Net Of Indra” is a unique collaboration between two Nordic jazz festivals. The band made their debut in March at the Vossa Jazz Festival in Norway, and now in Tampere they are seen in action for the second time.
The band is an authentic fusion of the best of Scandinavian jazz. In addition to Louhivuori, the band features Norwegian trumpeter Eivind Lønning, who’s known for playing with such names as Joshua Redman, Dave Holland and Chick Corea. Besides, he plays with avant-rock band Motorpsycho.
World-famous Swedish bass player Palle Danielsson, known for his collaboration with Keith Jarrett, Jan Garbarek and Bill Evans, became acquainted with Louhivuori when both played in Claudio Filippini’s trio Trio. Juhani “Junnu” Aaltonen needs no introduction. “His spiritual playing is flowing from somewhere out of this world” says Louhivuori.
When Louhivuori - known for his lyrical and experimental drum art - gets onstage with his musical soulmates, we can expect something good and beautiful.
