Mikko Karjalainen

Born:

Mikko "Gunu" Karjalainen (b.1974) is one of the most wanted trumpet soloists in Finland. He started his journey with music playing piano at the age of six. Very soon he decided trumpet to be his main instrument and started to explore. At his early teens he played trumpet, piano and harmonica with blues and soul bands in a little town of Kajaani. After moving to Helsinki in mid 90's he was completely thrown into jazz loop. 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

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
