Kari Ikonen Trio

Kari Ikonen Trio

The Kari Ikonen Trio is a Finnish piano trio known for their mystic harmonies and swinging rhythms.

The Kari Ikonen Trio is a jazz piano trio who are taking the classic piano trio style in remarkable new directions. Infusing mystic harmonies with a meditative sense of calm, their compositions are forward-looking and their improvisations never sacrifice the fragile balance between Ikonen's compositional aspirations and the individual freedoms of the performers.

The trio is comprised of pianist Kari Ikonen whose compositions are luminous and vivid, setting him apart from his peers, double bassist Ara Yaralyan and drummer Markku Ounaskaris. They perform with a mix of European jazz and Afro-American influences, fused with transoriental vibes.
