He has played on nearly every German and on numerous international Jazz and contemporary music Festivals including Vancouver, Toronto, Chicago, New York, Seattle, Quebec, Les Mans, Muelhuus, Groeningen, Nickelsdorf, Barcelona, Lithuania, Warsaw, Zagreb, Prague, Bratislava, Sofia, Bucharest, Odessa, Huddersfield, London.

He has been teaching saxophone and ensembles at the Cologne, Berlin and Arnhem Conservatory of Music and is giving workshops all around the world.

Harri Sjöström

Born in Finland in 1952, he played piano and guitar in his youth and later found his voice in the music on soprano and sopranino saxophones. He studied music and fine arts in San Francisco in the 1970s, which led to participation in workshops by John Cage, Vinko Globokar, George Russell and Bill Dixon, and to study saxophone under Leo Wright and Steve Lacy. After returning to Europe in 1978 he played with Derek Bailey, Paul Lovens, Paul Rutherford, Reggie Workman (among others) and eventually started an extensive working relationship with Cecil Taylor on many projects, including five small group recording releases. He has also composed music for film and is still active today with his photography.
