Biography

Bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten and saxophonist Håkon Kornstad together bring utterly modern, yet reverent, rendition of traditional Norwegian hymns.

The two musicians do not play these melodies as such, of course, they are inspired by them, using the themes to expand on, or even improvising pieces in the same spiritual mood.

They do not demonstrate instrumental pyrotechnics, except from the occasional multiphonics by Kornstad , but lots of precision and creativity in bringing very modern jazz based on folk tradition, keeping away from cheap sentiment, managing to be rich and restrained at the same time, true to the source material and so free at the same time.
