Bio

Sun Trio…


was born after The Louhivuori brothers made an Asian/Australian tour as a
duo which included a different bass player in every city. The tour was such a big success that Olavi and Kalevi (J.K.L) decided to create a new band with bassplayer Antti Lötjönen as a regular member. Sun Trio has already two albums under their belt, both released by the famous Italian/American label, Cam Jazz Records, which has recorded such prominent musicians as Kenny Wheeler and Chick Corea. The first album "Time Is Now" has got great reviews:


"The Sun Trio might be said to approximate the style of British artist DavidHockney."

-All About Jazz


“Best albums of the year 2010”

-French Jazz Magazine

 

Awards:

 

Sun Trio won Young Nordic Jazz Comets Competition in 2006 at Reykjavik, Iceland. J.K.L also got the soloist prize. Judges explained their decision like this:
" A COMPLETE GROUP WITH SKILFULL AND DYNAMIC PLAYING, CREATING A MUSICAL SPACE OF THEIR OWN, - IN THE GREAT LYRICAL NORDIC TRADITION."

"AN OUTSTANDING PERSONAL SOLOIST, ADDING NEW DIMENSIONS TO HIS INSTRUMENT BOTH TECHNICALLY AND MUSICWISE."

Today


Our third album "In The Dreamworld" is now ready and it will be released in an album release tour around U.S and Canada. This will happen in June 2014.

Sun trio released their second album "Dreams Are True" in Finland in June 2011.The international release was on 8th of September 2011. The album has a lot
more extremes in it than the first one. Even rock and prog rock influences can be heard, without forgetting the scandinavian and american jazz roots which are the basis of our music. Finland's main newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat, wrote a review of the album release concert with a headlineo: "Sun trio is now the hot name of JAZZ."

 

Personal word

I believe we ALL have great gifts to share and through courage, patience, presence and your personality we can make all the most improbable dreams come true and then more people could say instead of "no it´s impossible", "dreams are true and they live within you". 

 

Lots of Love and Light to you all!
