Soon Olli was playing in jazz clubs and festivals all around Finland. Despite his young age he’s already played with stars such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Andreas Öberg, Vitali Imereli and Joscho Stephan. In 2011 Olli recorded his first album "Trois Générations" with Hot Club de Finlande and Vitali Imereli. The upcoming winter is going to be Ollis' busiest so far, with gigs in Europe and US.
