Maxxxtet is an unprejudiced and fresh jazz quartet, featuring alto saxophone/bass clarinetist Max Zenger, trumpeter Tomi Nikku, bassist Teemu Åkerblom and drummer Jonatan Sarikoski.
Max, an adventure-seeking, multiculturally interested and multilingual musician writes tunes strongly influenced by his past and future experiences, adventures and encounters.
The group relies on Max Zenger's compositions, making them come to life by using their unique voices on their instruments.
Maxxxtet is tempting, impressive and explosive.
Maxxxtet is telling real and unreal stories with its original music.
Maxxxtet has released two albums (Eclipse Music): Debut album "Chapter 1" was released in October 2016 and "Chapter 2" in December 2017.
Spring 2019 Maxxxtet tours Finland with the French band Spring Roll (in cooperation with the Finnish Jazz Federation and Vapaat Äänet), after which the third album will be recorded and released!
”The result is seven well-constructed compositions that unfold through unhurried, careful development: it's music that doesn't have to hit you over the head to make its point, and for that reason it is all the more inviting.”
