Jukka Eskola Soul Trio is the Finnish trumpet player Jukka Eskola's solo project. The band has made a reputation of being an extremely strong live act. In addition to the stellar trumpet player / band leader Jukka Eskola, Soul Trio’s musicians are one of the most sought after jazz players in Finland and Europe.
The groups material is strongly influenced by 50’s and 60’s swinging jazz music, and also has a touch of gospel and soul in it. The band creates a lot of dynamics and even minimal musical solutions, never forgetting the importance to swing and groove. They have released two EP’s in 2016 by Grotto Editions and their first album came out in April 2017 by Timmion Records. In February 2019 they release a new 7" single from their forthcoming second album and tour with the new material. This tour is the first chance to hear the new music live. The new material is rough and soulful jazz music combined with the rhythms of South America.
