Johan Ölander Quartet

Led by the experienced Turku-based drummer and composer this quartet finds its own spot in melodical post-bop, flavoured by the fluent and liquid-like guitar/synth-guitar lines of Ari Polojärvi.
Ölander started playing drums at 14 and was soon playing blues, rock, pop and reggae. Later jazz became his maincourse. The finely structured Tongue-Twister came out in the spring and is the band’s fourth album. Ölander also play groovy organ jazz with the Alfred’s Hat trio.
