German born Sid Hille has been living in Finland and been active in the European jazz scene since 1994. This year he has composed music for the Finnish movie “Ainoat oikeat” (to be released in December 2013).
Last Monday July 29th his Film Collective – Verneri Pohjola (trp), Petri ‘Pope’ Puolitaival (sax), Teemu Viinikainen (g), Antti Lötjönen (b), Teppo Mäkynen (dr) and Sid Hille himself in piano presented his film music at Jazz-Espa in Helsinki. Their music has been influenced e.g. by Miles Davis and Keith Jarrett.
I enjoyed their playing. If the movie will be even half as good as the music, it’s worth to see.
