Finnish jazz legend, pianist and composer Heikki Sarmanto, entertained us at the Salmagundi Club with new and old pieces, including wonderfully virtuosic improvisations of classical Finnish tunes by Kuula, Backman and Ehrstrom. A friend and collaborator in the audience, vocalist Jeannnine Otis, jumped in at the encore at the audience’s request — a special treat!
