Koma Saxo, the highly potent new five-piece on the Berlin-Nordics axis produced by the visionary Swedish bassist Petter Eldh, will perform at the 40th Saalfelden International Jazz Festival on August 23rd.
Koma Saxo is a highly potent new five-piece produced by the visionary Berlin-based Swedish bassist-producer Petter Eldh. The lineup brings together five heavy jazz names on the Berlin–Nordics axis, including Eldh on bass, Christian Lillinger on drums and the frontline of three saxes: Otis Sandsjö, Jonas Kullhammar and Mikko Innanen. Despite the top-billing names, make no mistake: this is not just another “supergroup”, but a real working band with their own sound and musical trajectory. The band will be heard next time on August 23rd in Austria at the 40th Saalfelden International Jazz Festival.
Koma Saxo made a successful live debut at the We Jazz festival in Helsinki on December 2018 and went straight to studio. The Koma Saxo debut LP/CD on We Jazz Records is a revelation for anyone seeking contemporary jazz music with edge and vision.
