Ateneum club nights are small-scale and intimate gigs at the Ateneum Bistro. The series of club nights in the spring will be co-produced with We Jazz. This record label and festival, known as a pioneer of Finnish jazz, presents a series of top, current jazz acts from its roster of published artists. Club nights are held from 19:00 to 21:00, with showtime at 20:00.

Tickets, €20 (normal) / €15 (students), are available from the online shop:

Led by the drummer Okko Saastamoinen, OK:KO is a quartet that includes some of the most respected younger-generation jazz musicians. The original compositions and the strong distinctive voices of the soloists make the band one of the mightiest forces in new Finnish jazz. OK:KO’s second record, Syrtti, will see the light of day on 22 February, conveniently before the Ateneum gig.

The saxophonist Timo Lassy and the drummer Teppo Mäkynen will present their explosive new duo in the spring of 2019. They will release a new seven-inch single, followed by a full-length album, and at the Ateneum show, this star duo of Finnish jazz will be playing their fresh material for the first time.

Led by the drummer Joonas Leppänen, Alder Ego is a band that released its acclaimed album “II” on the We Jazz label in October 2018. Leppänen’s reflective compositions and the overall sound of the tight-knit and musically adventurous quartet are an unbeatable combination. It is no wonder, then, that the popular international radio channels BBC3 and KEXP, for example, have embraced the record and added it to their playlists.
