The Finnish folk jazz band Tjango! released their second album in May 2017. Originally a side project for some of Finland’s top classical musicians, the band has grown into a notable and exceptionally versatile act in the Finnish folk jazz scene. The musical roots of Tjango! lie in the swing of Django Reinhardt and the tango nuevo of Astor Piazzolla. The band has yet travelled quite a bit from the crossroads of gypsy jazz and tango. The title of their new record, ”Greens and Blues”, refers to the colours of the Finnish summer, but also to bluegrass music, which is a new dimension in the band’s repertoire.
