Jazzkaar 2016: Taavo & Heikko Remmel

A father-and-son double bass duo! Bass ace Taavo Remmel is ravishing both when playing classical and jazz music. He is one of the most valued players to have in your group, but also a charismatic solo artist and an excellent improviser on his “very big violin”, i.e. the contrabass. Despite his youth, Heikko Remmel has already played together with many acknowledged jazz artists. He is considered to be one of the best contrabass players and group members of the new generation in Estonia.
