2023 IASJ Jazz Meeting, Helsinki, Finland: 26 June – 1 July

Dear IASJ-family,

We can't believe how fast time flies. The 2023 IASJ Jazz Meeting feels like last week, and now it's mid-September. We hope you all had a sunny and relaxing summer after Helsinki. 

Once again, we want to thank each and every one of you for coming. Words cannot express how grateful we were (and still are) for having you all here in June and making the meeting very special.

Here's finally IASJ Helsinki wrap-up. Remember also to tune your T-shirt or back bag (see the pic) with the canvas patch. Iron it from the reverse side to the place you want it.

Greetings from sunny Helsinki,


Jussi Kannaste, Sami Linna, Jari Perkiömäki
