In his native country Finland, the pianist Iiro Rantala has also made a name for himself as the composer of several musicals. Just to name two of them: «Heinähattu ja Vilttitossa ja Liittoisten Rivlö, Sinkka ja Tiina Nopola» from 2004 and «Risto Räppääjä ja Villi Kone» from 2009. (Whoever manages to remember the names by heart and to quote them without a mistake gets a free ticket.) Rantala is not a jazz nerd, but a creative whirlwind. So you never know what he'll pull out of the hat next.
