Like fellow Finnish JTC artist, Mika Tyyska, Olli is a bit of a magician when it comes to 6 strings. However his arena for playing and indeed the guitar itself is a very different thing. From the moment he was introduced to the work of the great Django Reinhardt, Olli has been focussed on gypsy jazz, and quite frankly what he does is incredible. Vanity Fair said that he “combines astonishing dexterity and speed with pure soul in a way that places him among the worthiest current day successors to the legacy of the great Django.” We couldn’t agree more. In a bid to demystify his art, Olli released his Gypsy Jazz Masterclass, a must if you’re even a little bit intrigued by this challenging genre.
