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.
