Jussi Fredriksson is one of the top Finnish jazz pianists of his generation. He has toured around the world and released a total of 7 acclaimed albums. In addition, he is the founder of the Jazz City Turku concept.
He is doing his doctors degree at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, at the same time running his own record label. Recently this maniac ran for the city board of Turku bringing fresh ideas, especially for cultural politics. So, I guess you could say that Jussi is a solid 360° entrepreneur when it comes to jazz business and cultural issues.
