Jussi Lehtonen

One of the most used drummers in the finnish jazz-scene, has played with almost every major jazz-artist in Finland.

Jussi Lehtonen appeared to the jazz scene of Helsinki in 1997 as he started his studies at the Pop & Jazz Conservatory where he moved to the jazz department of Sibelius Academy in fall 2000. During the last years of 1990s Lehtonen played in many bands, such as altosaxophonist Janne Huttunen's Uncle Bop and Janne Huttunen's and guitarist Mikko Kosonen's The Homer.

In the past few years Lehtonen has been active as a sideman, in addition to leading his own groups and teaching. Among the most active bands has been Timo Lassy Band, which has played a lot in Finland and also a tour in the U.S., and some gigs in Europe. Jukkis Uotila Band has also been active, playing in Finland and also in Japan. Other projects with Uotila include Jaco’s music with UMO (the no.1 big band in Finland) and the McCoy Tyner project. One of the most active bands recently has been The Mokners, which is a trio with Hirvonen and the unstoppable vibraphonist Severi Pyysalo. This band will be releasing a live cd in the near future, recorded during a Jazz Federation tour of Finland in April 2009.
