Combining forces as a duo these two household names of Finnish jazz, saxophonist Timo Lassy and drummer Teppo Mäkynen, are here to present their powerful music at full speed. Whilst sensing co-operation that has lasted over a decade playing together in various bands (Teddy Rok 7, The Five Corners Quintet, Jo Stance, Timo Lassy Band) there is a feel of freshness, excitement and something new when listening to debut album “Timo Lassy & Teppo Mäkynen”. The album has already gathered some great feedback such as the recent nomination for “Jazz Album of the Year” at Gilles Peterson Worlwide FM Awards 2020.
