Sointi Jazz Orchestra

Join us, as the The Sointi Jazz Orchestra celebrates its fifth-year anniversary at the April Jazz Club.

The Sointi Jazz Orchestra is a Finnish big band comprised of talented young musicians. Look forward to hearing an assortment of the group’s creative original material and a revisit of last Fall’s release, “Saarnaaja”. Finnish jazz legend Juhani Aaltonen joins the 18 member orchestra as the soloist for ”Saarnaaja” on saxophone and flute.

The cinematic compositions of Sointi Jazz Orchestra blend many traditions of popular music with classical influences. Since its birth in 2013, the group has only ever performed original works or works arranged specifically for it. During its existence they’ve worked with, among others, singer Aili Ikonen (Jörö-Jukka 2015), saxophone player Jukka Perko (Hoosianna 2015) and The Student Theater (Juhlat 2015) and released three studio albums: “Syntymä” (2016), “Tiernapojat” (2017) and “Saarnaaja” (2018).
