Our first Jazznight at the SUNN was a success so we now take it to the bridge!
What better place in Helsinki to come and enjoy a nice piece of Jazz than the now legendary restaurant SUNN, smack in the middle of the city. This time the “Jazz Senators” feature the acclaimed Mikko “Gunu” Karjalainen on trumpet and flugelhorn.
Gunu grew up listening to giants like Clifford Brown, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Chet Baker, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole and Kenny Dorham strenghtened his love for jazz and helped him to develop his own lyrical approach to this music. 
Twenty years performing with different contexts has found Gunu sharing stage with legends like Kenny Garrett, John Scofield, Jukkis Uotila, Joe Lovano, Jeff “Tain” Watts and Dave Kikoski. 
Gunu has led his own bands like Mikko Karjalainen Fellowship Quintet and Gunu’s Thang. He is also a member of all-star collective Ricky Tick Big Band & Julkinen Sana and unique drummer figure Teppo Mäkynen’s Teddy’s West Coasters. 
His tone is warm, soulful and beautifully controlled. His playing is rhythmically clear and determined and his storytelling is always a pleasure to follow. 

Gunu is now back from touring Russia and his endless stage-charisma and outgoing attitude will be reinforced by the infamous “Jazz Senators”, the living and breathing Groove machine. Aleksi Heinola is the Tempo Pocketer, coupled with the Class behind the Bass act Sampo Tiittanen together with the Monkfisher John Grönvall on the giant piano. 
These mythical young characters will have you patting your feet, popping your fingers or clapping your hands or shaking your heads – or shaking whatever else you want to shake – in no time at all. So we’d like you all to join in with us on this one unique evening! Let your hair down and come and enjoy the music and special dinner at restaurant SUNN on April 20th 2018.
