"Seim's subtle and sumptuous overlaying of textures creates a sense of constant evolution… Eerily hymnal contemporary jazz from a unique ensemble." - The Guardian

Saxophonist Trygve Seim leads a band that reads like a who's who of Norway's extraordinarily fertile jazz scene. Luminaries like trumpeter Arve Henriksen and accordionist Frode Haltli all perform accoustically in a ten piece orchestra that utilises rarer instruments like the bass saxophone. Exquisite and haunting tone poems that evoke Seim's mentor Jan Garbarek.
