Steered by Mäensivu’s brilliant bass lines, the trio performs its own compositions and individual takes on jazz classics with quirky arrangements and sharp Finnish lyrics sung by Mäensivu.
The fresh trio has an international vibe and a solid background working with jazz legends: drummer Joe Peri hails from New York and has recorded with Tony Bennett, and vibraphonist Severi Pyysalo has worked with Sarah Vaughn.
Representing different generations and parts of the world, the musicians celebrate the universal language of jazz music. In March 2021, Flame Jazz Records released a selection of the trio’s music on the Kaisa Mäensivu: Hand Picked EP.
“Kaisa Mäensivu Trio’s concert vibrated with a sense of occasion, and the vocal parts had a distinctly personal touch”
– Matti Komulainen, Turun Sanomat
The programme consists of the trio members’ own compositions, jazz standards and Mäensivu’s Finnish lyrical adaptations.
