Mikko Nurmi is a music book author, composer and bass player
I am an author (music books), composer and bass player. I am
currently studying to become a doctor of music in Sibelius Academy.
I write instruction books of improvisation and bass playing. My books
include The Music of Paul Chambers. Mr. Ron Carter reviewed it as:
I’ve just finished reading the book, “THE MUSIC OF PAUL
CHAMBERS”. As a bassist found it very informative, and as a reader of
many books, found it very well organized, thoughtful, and very moving.
This book is a must for all bassists !!
I have several other books coming out soon. I also compose and do
gigs as a bass player. My bands include modern jazz band Nousu
(www.myspace.com/nousu2), Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog and King
Crimson influenced free improvisation/jazz band Kaarna
(www.myspace.com/kaarna222) and several non-jazz bands.
