Piik

A 1 track post bop single (3m 20s) — released January 25th 2019 on We Jazz

The second taste of new music from the fresh Helsinki four-piece OK:KO. "Piik" is a cut from their second album "Syrtti" to be released on We Jazz Records on February 22. The looping, rhythmic groove of "Piik" invites you along for a ride which displays the group's knack at making deep yet approachable music full of energy and intensity.

OK:KO, led by drummer Okko Saastamoinen, is a group comprising of some of the most sought-after talents of the young generation of Finnish jazz. Soulful sax player Jarno Tikka continues his rise to the top after his strong effort on the previous We Jazz LP, Alder Ego "II". Bassist Mikael Saastamoinen (no relation to Okko) is the current "Rising Star" of Helsinki's We Jazz Festival with his solo project Perussastamala, and while pianist Toomas Keski-Säntti may be the least known name here, he makes a strong mark with his thoughtful touch on the piano on several tracks on "Syrtti".
