Finnish jazz pianist & composer Teemu Kekkonen is a rising star in the European scene.
Thoughtfully crafted compositions, cinematic harmonies, captivating grooves and familiar melodies are the cornerstones of his music.
One foot in Finland’s folk roots and one in the most urbane of metropolitan jazz clubs, the trio is as adaptable as the leader’s omnivorous mind demands. Their openness to everything from Ravel to rock, traditional Finnish music to contemporary jazz provides a highly individual twist on the classic trio format, for an experience that is equally calming and exhilarating.

Teemu Kekkonen Trio presents music from the pianist’s debut album Here/There, along with newer compositions about to be recorded in 2023.

Teemu Kekkonen – piano

“Teemu’s compositions and piano playing are a pure delight: adventurous with syncopated surprise. –
The Aquarian Weekly

“If there’s one constant, it’s their willingness to go anywhere.”
– All About Jazz

“Here/There” is fresh and sometimes boisterous contemporary jazz, full of interesting ideas and the
skillful teamwork of the entire trio. It clears a space for itself alongside other high-level piano trios.”
