Alder Ego’s fearless music surfs along the coastline of Leppänen’s compositions and takes swoops in the open ocean of free jazz. The quartet consists of young improv talents and Leppänen has opened the band a broad musical horizon after his years in Berlin and Gothenburg. The music seeks to address bigger pictures and it could be described as communicative, narrative chamber jazz.

Alder Ego released their second album II in October 2018. The album presents Leppänen’s reflective but intensively bursting composing style. The music is elegant modern jazz: melodic, flowing and surprising. The layers of their music invites the lister to a long journey of exploration, which offers new astonishments over and over again.
