Jussi Fredriksson is a Finnish jazz musician, composer, music pedagogue and producer. Born in 1980, Fredriksson originally hails from the culturally rich city of Turku and nowadays lives in Helsinki. He plays an active part in the jazz lives of both of the cities and works actively as a musician, manning both pianist/keyboardist slots and drum stools of several ensembles operating at the forefront of the lively Finnish jazz scene. Recently Fredriksson has also taken a more active part in the workings of the Finnish Jazz Federation, becoming a member of the organisation’s board in 2012.
The Jussi Fredriksson jazz story properly begins in 1995, as the then 15-year old musician started working professionally in the scene. In 2000, Fredriksson relocated in Helsinki in order to begin his studies at the Sibelius Academy, known for generating a large portion of the current jazz talent in Finland....
