I’m a bass player from Helsinki, Finland. I play both double bass and electric bass and compose my own music. I am active in the Finnish jazz scene and currently play in groups such as Bowman Trio, The Watercolors, Selma Juudit Alessandra and Lithium, among others. I’m also leading my own band Joonas Tuuri Quartet.
‘’The lyrical ’Shadows’ brings a rhythmic flavor of Northeast Brazil, the Baião, that adds beautifully to the palette of colors and atmospheres of the album – pay attention to Joonas’ solo (bass), full of intent and personality.’’
– Chico Pinheiro, 2017 in the liner note of Lithium ‘’Red’’
‘’Tuuri used his plentiful solo space in a very mature way, respecting in a humble way the atmosphere of each song.’’
– Pentti Ronkanen, 2016, SuomiJazz.com
