APRIL JAZZ CLUB: Tuomas Paukku Scription November 24th, 2023
Founded in 2016, Tuomas Paukku Scription represents a personal and strong vision in Finnish contemporary jazz. The ensemble, which will release its second album in 2023, interprets the distinctive and atmospheric music composed by guitarist Tuomas Paukku with impressive devotion.
Scription’s style is based on modern jazz impressionism and post-bop, but constantly finds new nuances and perspectives in his music also from the outer edges of jazz expression. Paukku’s open-minded interest in several types of music stands out in a subtle and flamboyant way. The bold Scandinavian atmospheres and excitingly progressive moods of Scription’s music have moved listeners across genres.
Melodic, tensely developing, carefully crafted. Tuomas Paukku’s music is clearly part of Scandinavian design. Right now it’s a big trend in the world, the Nordic is widely admired. Well, trends come and trends go. However, Scription’s work has such values that they will last a long time.

The songs on the album are layered like an onion, where the relationship between composed and improvisational layers forms an interesting whole. Excellent Finnish modern jazz.
