Jimi Tenor

Jimi Tenor

Real Name:
Lassi Lehto
Musician and composer Jimi Tenor (b. 1965 in Lahti, Finland) has never settled for the traditional role of a pop artist. He is known as a productive musician whose work lies beyond current trends, and also as a performer who combines the finest elements of afro-american music, spontaneous silliness and shameless glamour in an original way.

I went to see him live at the 100 club in London in '96-'97. Still have the ticket.
I remember "Can't Stay With You Baby" but I don't know much else of his portfolio.
There you go; second comment about Jimi on Discogs. Only took nine years.

I can't believe Mr. Tenor has no comments!! I'll be first to say that amongst his numerous releases, there are quite a few classics that any music lover would kick themselves for not owning. I mainly like the Warp material but, the Utopian Dream album is choice as well. Always beautifully arranged with top quality live instrumentation, jazzy on one end and straight funky on another, you can't go wrong. Get yourself some Tenor!
