Sun Trio was born after The Louhivuori brothers made an Asian/Australian tour as a duo which included a different bass player in every city. The tour was such a big success that Olavi and Kalevi (J.K.L) decided to create a new band with bassplayer Antti Lötjönen as a regular member. Sun Trio has already two albums under their belt, both released by the famous Italian/American label, Cam Jazz Records, which has recorded such prominent musicians as Kenny Wheeler and Chick Corea.
