Album Description

Born in 1964, saxophonist and composer Pekka Pylkkänen has been recognized as one of the stronger jazz artists and saxophonists in Europe. He has performed around the globe and has been very successful not only in Europe, but also in Asia and South America, for example. He has collaborated with numerous prestigious artists in many countries, and continues to work as a soloist/leader, recording artist and educator all over the world.

“The general idea is about the Italian lifestyle and the beauty that one can find there – not easy to describe in a few words, but like finding the most beautiful things behind a slightly trashed or 'b-flat' areas/places/details. ‘Nu Bottega’ just means ‘new restaurant’ – but having this vibe of a shared kitchen, cooking with friends, sharing the bread and so on. Cooking (mostly Italian nowadays) is one of my passions, and sharing that with my friends is one of my greatest joys.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
