Finnish saxophonist Pauly Lyytinen makes a repeat appearance at jazzahead! this year, after having performed with his other project Elifantree at the 2011 edition already. With his quartet Defekt, he presents a mix of jazz, rock, alternative pop and very skillful free improvisation. Simple, but strong melodies supported by deep, thick rhythms let their music seem simple, even catchy, and intricate at the same time.
Line-up: Line-up: Pauli Lyytinen (sax), Øyvind Hegg-Lunde (dr), Joonas Kuusisto (b), Siggi Rögnvalsson (g), Jusu Berghäll (sax)
