APRIL JAZZ CLUB: Filemon von Numers Quartet November 17th, 2023
Bassist Filemon von Numers makes his debut as a bandleader with a unique line-up. The bassist, who recently returned from Paris, has been working hard with several top Finnish players in recent years. As a part of UMO, he performed with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Guillermo Klein and Melissa Aldana.
Juilliard alumni Francesco Ciniglio, who has created a strong career on both sides of the Atlantic with his tradition-conscious and visionary playing, will take the stage with Filemon von Numers. Ciniglio has played with Wynton Marsalis, Aaron Parks, Joe Sanders, Shai Maestro and Stefano Di Battista.
The quartet is completed by Finnish stars Joonatan Rautio and Jukkis Uotila. The concert features compositions by von Numers and Uotila.
