Joona Toivanen Trio - Except For / Keyboard Study No. 2
Format: 7" Vinyl
Catalogue No.: WJ0716
Release Date: 9th July 2021
Genre: Jazz (Avant Garde Jazz)
Gothenburg-based Finnish pianist Joona Toivanen makes his We Jazz Records debut with his long-standing trio featuring Tapani Toivanen on bass and Olavi Louhivuori of Superposition on drums. Searching for new opportunities on the minimal side of acoustic groove-based free music, the trio introduces a single edit of a hard-driving album track to be, "Except For", and a fresh take on Terry Riley's "Keyboard Study No. 2" on the flip. Fans of introspective jazz piano plus minimalist modern composition take notice.
