Let Mikko Pettinen Why Not take you on a musical journey
Mikko Pettinen Why Not is trumpeter Mikko Pettinen’s brand new group comprised of some top-class Finnish talent. The group performs original compositions by Pettinen, which mate the traditional tones of classic acoustic jazz with modern sounds, featuring electronics, loops and effects, while borrowing from ethnic and ambient music and free improvisation.
The group is formed around the trumpet, baritone sax, bass and drums -core, inspired by Chet Baker and Gerry Mulligan, but expands on the timbre of the classic line-up in novel ways by incorporating additional instruments, such as cello and bass clarinet as well as electronic instruments.
India, Saimaa, Sahara, New York, London, Africa, the island of Gozo. These are just some of the stops along the musical journey undertaken by Mikko Pettinen Why Not. Music is at its best universal and that’s this is about as well.
