In 1989 we started in a very small scale. Being in Finland it was more like a sauna jam-session. After a couple of years we already were a tree-day-festival with 5-6 possibilities to listen to jazz. Since 2004 the concerts and jam-sessions all together has been around 20 and the festival starting on Wednesday and ending on the early Sunday hours. The size is now still easy the handle by us amateurs!
We have a decision since approximately ten years that we concentrate on jazz-artists from Finland. Furthermore we have a decision to make Korpo Sea Jazz “a scene for professional jazz-musicians”. We have also defined what we mean with a professional jazz musician.
Korpo is a part of the South-West archipelago of Finland. The concerts are mainly arranged on the Korpo main island but concerts are also hold on the nearby islands, Nagu and Houtskär.
Until 2009 Micke Långbacka had the responsibility for the festival program and since 2009 we have appointed an art-director yearly
