Big Blue is one of three domestic groups launching their album at the festival this year. The band plays a unique style of modern jazz, which features compositions that range throughout the jazz spectrum, interpreted by the skilful hands of soloist trumpeter Jorma Kalevi Louhivuori. The productive young musicians of Big Blue are already veterans of several distinguished ensembles, such as Sun Trio, The Northern Governors and Auteur Jazz. The album, titled “Big Blue”, was released to international acclaim in 2011. The same can be expected from their next album, coming out in the spring of 2013.
