This Finnish-Swedish trio combines effortlessly pop with jazz and free improvisation. Their unique combo and style has already brought them victory at the Finnish final of The Young Nordic Jazz Comets �competition in 2008. They were also voted the ”Gig of the Year” award on the critics poll in The Wire �magazine in 2009. Now they release their debut album with the Finnish record label Eclipse Music.
Elifantree was formed in 2007 after Pauli Lyytinen and Anni Egecioglu met in Gothenburg, Sweden where they both were studying at the time. Tatu, a lifelong friend of Pauli’s, soon joined and the trio played their first show at Tatu’s father’s art exhibition premiere. Realizing the musical potential of the quirky,minimalistic arrangements that consisted only of saxophone, voice and drums the band started a relentless task of playing as much live shows as possible. They soon made a name for themselves in the jazz scene in Helsinki and Gothenburg....
