Kari Ikonen & Louis Sclavis (FIN/FRA)

Kari Ikonen – piano and/or Moog synthesizer
Louis Sclavis – clarinet & bass clarinet

This big small band plays Ikonen’s and Sclavis’ earthy compositions and some freshly arranged traditional music from Sirius and other elliptical galaxies.
The duo has performed since 2016 in Finland and France, and is featured on Kari Ikonen’s album IKONOSTASIS, released in April 2017 by German label Ozella.

”Extended, open-ended musical conversation.” (****)
-John Ephland, DownBeat (USA)

”Wonderful, sometimes also adventurous, spacious chamber music” -JazzThing (DE)

”Albums like Ikonostasis have become rare” -Jazzthetik (DE)
