Jazz-rock with atmosphere
Jere Haakana Varjosto, formed in 2016, is an original jazz quartet with rock influences. Their music combines the powerful character compositions and cinematic soundscapes to rhythmic energy and improvisation drawing from tradition of jazz. In addition to jazz fans, the composition-centric music and the electric guitar tones resonate also with listeners less familiar with traditional jazz ensemble sound. Varjosto celebrate the release of their debut album on the Jazz Finland tour in May 2019.
Jere Haakana (b.1983) is a free-spirited guitarist and composer, who doesn’t respect the narrow box, which jazz music is so often locked into. In addition to leading his own Varjosto quartet, he has played contemporary jazz in Kasperi Sarikoski’s Nuance, contemporary art music in Unio Ensemble, hip hop in Redrama’s band and big band music with UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra.
