Lauri Kadalipp Social Jazz is a group consisting of young and bright Estonian jazz musicians Allan Järve, Kirke Karja, and Tõnu Tubli, led by saxophonist Lauri Kadalipp. The group performs original material and also puts their own twist on well-known jazz hits, being mostly influenced by jazz standards, R’n’B, and contemporary music. It’s a mixture of dynamics and emotions indulging in luscious harmonies and refined rhythms. Their music will take the listener on a journey of sounds bending the rules of gravity to let your mind levitate between the sky and ground. If you like the sound of Chris Potter, the musical precision of Ben Wendel, and a tasty aggressive touch with live electronics to it, you’ll love the music created by Social Jazz. Lauri Kadalipp Social Jazz has conquered most of Estonia and is planning to expand abroad.
They released their first LP “Feels Just Right” in early 2018.
