The opening number in 7, for example, was an insistent, subtly volcanic one one, Abdissa "Mamba" Assefa's quick-cut percussive touches, the sampled basslines from Heikki Iso-Ahola, and steady guitar chords from the leader ripe for the dancing, partying crowd. Perhaps paradoxically, it was a music that was easy to follow in a complex way. And, as with everything else that was played and heard (including, no doubt, the few shows this reviewer missed), Tampere Jazz Happening was once again in the ears, hearts and minds of everyone on hand to help complete the circle and make it all come alive. And that they did.
