Saxophonist Timo Lassy and drummer Teppo Mäkynne are known as one of the key characters of the new finnish jazz generation, that made an uprising in the beginning of the 2000. Within the years they’ve worked together in many remarkable combos such as Teddy Rok 7, The Five Corners Quintet, Jo Stance and Timo Lassy Band. 

This time these two will conquer the stage with their new duo project, which consists of exciting and vast combination from spiritual free improvisation to tight grooves and everything that fits in between those categories. 

Recently released Timo Lassy & Teppo Mäkynen debut (We Jazz Records) has gained brilliant reviews all over. The latest was a nomination to “ Jazz Album of the Year” -Worldwide FM Awards/Gilles Peterson. 

“Brilliant album!” – Gilles Peterson

“The two make simple sound simply divine.” 4/5  – DownBeat

“Quite a surprise. And a good one.” – The Wire

“This album is a success.” – UK Vibe

“Like its multicolored but straightforward cover, this music is very simple but seductive.” 4/5 – All About Jazz
