Remembering Ted Curson in Pori Jazz 1974


The 50th Pori Jazz is going right now. There are only two persons, who have played in the first 47 festivals from 1966 to 2012: Reino Laine (b. 1946), a Finnish drummer and Ted Curson (1935-2012), an American trumpetist.

Ted Curson created a special connection to Finland. Not only being a regular guest and player in Pori, he has also been playing in the smoke sauna for hundred ladies (link in Finnish), and in the celebration of the Independence Day of Finland.

Here are pictures of Ted Curson playing with the Pori Big Band in 1974 Pori Jazz.
