“The jazz single is a weird bird. The history of the forma lies in commercial functions such as juke boxes and radio promotion tools, the attempts to deliver those few minute emotional bursts between our air waves of attention. So unfitting was the format back in its hay days of the 1960’s that many jazz workouts were deemed to be split in half to those dreaded pt. 1’s and 2’s, fading out the fun just when cooking got cooking and swingin singing. Ultraääni have fortunately spared us from this scenario, and offer two unique performances by two dynamic acts. Antti Vauhkonen’s one-man-show Oiro Pena hops on his typical deeply spiritual train with “Jazzpelle”. The title takes its strength from the insult that Finnish jazzers have gotten used to hear from less sophisticated lips. Jooklo Sextet’s psychedelic flip shares many qualities with quality hardcore punk from its 2 minute duration to the rawness of the performance. Grown from a duo to quartet and now all the way to a sextet, the Jooklos give us their everything with an energy that would probably make pops Charlie proud.” – Markus Karlqvist
