Pekka Pylkkanen (b1964)

Born in 1964, Pekka Pylkkänen began playing the clarinet at the age of ten. He soon switched to the alto saxophone, later taking up different instruments, including flutes, clarinets, saxophones and piano. He received his Master of Music degree from the Sibelius Academy in 2001, majoring in the saxophone in performance. While studying in Finland, he took a year off to attend the Rotterdam Conservatory. He also studied privately in the USA with, for example, Dave Liebeman and Dick Oatts. He has participated in Masterclasses conducted by such virtuosos as Joe Lovano, Tom Harrell, Jack DeJohnette, Adam Nussbaum and Joey Calderazzo.

Pekka Pylkkänen has worked as a studio musician for recordings, radio and television broadcasts. He has led his own bands, the Pekka Pylkkänen Group, the Quartet Pylssy and Pekka’s Tube Factory. In addition to composing music for these groups, he has contributed works for the Onfonia Saxophone Quartet and other ensembles. Pekka Pylkkänen has performed at European jazz festivals with, for example, the Finnish vocal group How Many Sisters. As a saxophonist he has also been the first on call for many international stars playing in Finland: Vince Mendoza, Eumir Deodata, the Odean Pope Saxophone Choir, to name only a few.
