Joona Toivanen Trio

Joona Toivanen Trio

Profile:
Finnish jazz trio, formed in 1997.

The Joona Toivanen Trio plays contemporary, intelligent, versatile, and above all lyrical jazz. They have a skilful grip on the art of improvisation and know how to deliver a great mix of original compositions with superb musicianship. They do so at times with a melancholic Nordic vibe and often an air of gladness and joy touches is laced through their material. The music of Joona Toivanen trio is considered lyrical and elegant but equally strongly individual and daring and has its genesis in the Finnish nature and draws from the its rich epic and folk tradition.

Active since 1997, this ambitious and young threesome have an unassuming and natural attitude to their playing, and today are considered one of the most internationally successful young jazz groups in Finland. They have performed and toured around Europe, Australia and Asia at key festivals and exotic music spots, and are enjoying a wonderful reception wherever they go, filling the hearts of young and old with delightful amazement.
