Case Kämäräinen at Café Coda

November 12 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

An illustration shows multi-colored images of a keyboard, a turntable, a microphone, speakers, a "play" button," and sliders and indicators from a soundboard, all arranged in a grid-like pattern.

Split between the US, Finland, and Poland, Case Kämäräinen‘s international dynamic pays off in the quartet’s versatility. The project is currently made up of drummer Tomi Kämäräinen, pianist Tuomo Uusitalo, saxophonist Marek Konarski, and bassist Myles Sloniker. Sloniker is the group’s lone American member and Konarski the only Polish member. Uusitalo and Kämäräinen both presently call Finland home. Each of Case Kämäräinen’s four members brings a distinct, aggressive dynamic to the band’s performances, muscling their way into strikingly complementary cacophonies of dueling harmonies and tasteful dissonance.


Mystique From The North, Case Kämäräinen’s latest album, taps into a more melancholic approach but it suits the material (Konarski and Kämäräinen are the only two from this live iteration to have played on the album). Even with that melancholic bent, the record makes allowances for fiery playing, as is the case on “Cabin Feaver,” showcasing both the band’s inventiveness and range.
