He have participated on more than 100 recordings.

Håker Flaten represents a special era in Norwegian bass tradition. Inspired by Jimmy Garrison, Richard Davis and William Parker, aswell as European bassists such as Barry Guy, Dave Holland and Peter Kowald, he provides an historical continuity of the instrument’s tradition, and as such, improvisation. Ingebrigt’s bassplaying also draw inspiration and energy from his deep roots in the bustling Norwegian jazz scene.
