Peloton (plotô) s.m. l. Scandinavian jazz quintet, formed in 2005. Released in 2007 the album “Selected Recordings”, which provided several remarkable instances of unconventional collective playing, though their music remained accessible to a large audience. Discarding the tradition jazz roles of soloists and accompanists, the players took the lead by turn and created textures that were continuously changing.
Did intensive touring all over Scandinavia in 2008-2009, by the end of 2010 they were playing at the major festivals all over Europe. By 2016, the band struggled with inner conflicts which broke the surface with the legendary catastrophic concert at The Royal Albert Hall. It was then impossible to continue, and they did not play together until the also catastrophic Live Aid concert in 2018.
Peloton (plotô) s.m. l. means fearless in Finnish.
