Her quartet features Steinar Raknes, perhaps Norway´s premier bass player of his generation. Steinar has toured all over the world, and his daring and solid playing has laid the foundation for Urban Connection, Chick Corea, Ola Kvernberg, the Core and Shagma, getting rave reviews everywhere he travels. Vigleik Storås on piano is a new collaborator for Kirsti, and he brings to the table many years of experience from the top shelf of the European jazz scene. Previous sparring partners for Vigleik include Chet Baker, Warne Marsh, Karin Krogh, Jon Christensen and Terje Rypdal. Vigleik´s own trio has won the Norwegian Grammy (Spellemannsprisen) for jazz twice. The only Swede in Kirsti´s band is Erik Nylander on drums, who just completed his four-year training at NTNU´s much-lauded jazz department. Erik also plays with Ola Kvernberg and Kobert when he´s not performing with Kirsti.
