Northbound – Summer Jazz Series at Scandinavia House

Our popular Summer Jazz Series returns to Scandinavia House! This summer we’re presenting performances from some of Scandinavia’s most talented young jazz musicians, composers, and singers on Thursday evenings, June 7 through July 19. Join us for a reception on the Volvo Hall terrace starting at 6:30 PM, followed by the concert at 7 PM.Northbound, a trio featuring Tuomo Uusitalo on piano, Myles Sloniker on bass, and Olavi Louhivuori on drums, takes the language of jazz to surprising new levels, using the unlimited expressive options of their instruments. Playing with a wide-ranging harmonic palate, these young and award-winning artists find introspective moods ranging from fiery to serene through free interaction following a balanced, essential design. For this performance they will feature soloist and acclaimed sax musician Rich Perry.
