Kaisa’s Machine pictures Kaisa’s vision of music in the form of her compositions. The music aims to be relatable in its pureness – sometimes it’s bouncy and groovy, celebrating with you, other times making you ponder all the mysteries and tragedies of life on our planet. Playing bass is Kaisa’s way of dealing with it all.
The band was formed in 2015 by award-winning jazz double bassist Kaisa Mäensivu and they have since performed in many prestigious venues and festivals including Ronnie Scott’s in London, the Bimhuis in Amsterdam, Smalls Jazz Club in NYC and Pori Jazz Festival in Finland. The band’s debut album In the key of K was released in December 2017, followed by their sophomore album ‘Taking Shape’ that was released on July 7th 2023 via Dave Douglas’ Greenleaf Music.
