Rantajatsit 2015 would like to thank!

Jazz on the Beach 2015 would like to thank everybody involved: the artists, audience, sponsors and voluntary workers for a fabulous festival. Jazz on the Beach will return 28 - 30 July 2016.

Rantajatsi-haiku by one of the voluntary workers, Tae Iwase:

Shiokaze to onpu mau hama yowa no natsu

*) Sea breeze and notes are falling down on the beach. That makes me just staying up late for enjoying the one summer night.

Jazz on the Beach calling

How does it feel to come to this jazz oasis of Northern Finland?

Dave Liebman, you have performed at Jazz on the Beach before, in 1996 in quartet with Lars Danielson, Bobo Stenson and Jon Christensen. How does it feel to come back to this jazz oasis of Northern Finland with these young lions of Finnish jazz?

"Celebrating my return to Raahe, I’d like to offer a few comments on an aspect of jazz which is how the music is passed on from generation to generation. It is interesting that I will be playing at the same festival I did years ago, except this time with a generation distanced from me by several decades.
