”This is a wholly original take on the improvising piano trio." -Jazz Journal (UK)

The Finnish Kari Ikonen Trio has been active since 2012. Its two albums ”Bright" and "Beauteous Tales and Offbeat Stories" on German label Ozella have gained a lot of international success, making the band busy playing at clubs and festivals all over Europe, Asia, Australia and the USA. KIT’s third album "Wind, Frost & Radiation" was released in May 2018.

Besides of the trio, the pianist-moogist-composer Kari Ikonen is currently active with several other bands like Orchestra Nazionale della Luna, Quartet Ajaton and Trio Toffa - and different projects with Louis Sclavis, Bob Moses, Tom Arthurs, Ingrid Jensen, Tony Malaby, Jeff Denson, Vincent Courtois and Juhani Aaltonen. Ikonen has won several international awards for his compositions, and in 2013 he received the Yrjö Award as the Finnish Jazz Musician of the Year.
