Espoo Big Band (EBB) is one of the greatest Finnish big jazz orchestras and known particularly as a performer of new Finnish big band music. In addition to touring in Asia, Australia, and Brazil, EBB has played at many of the worlds’ leading jazz festivals and released eleven albums. Last summer EBB performed at the North Sea Jazz at Rotterdam, one of Europe’s major jazz festivals.

EBB is set to release a new album in February, the “Espoo Suite”, with compositions by Marzi Nyman. The audience gets to go on an imaginary trip to Espoo and follow a frantic moonshine smuggler chase and an intense battle at a local sports field.

A Finnish top jazz singer, Mirja Mäkelä, will be joining the band as the soloist. The works included in this concert are mostly from Mirja Mäkelä Trio’s albums “Runoisa” and “My Hidden Joys”, with lyrics by Finnish poets and Mäkelä herself. Arrangements are by Mikko Hassinen, Ville Vannemaa, and Marzi Nyman.
