The concept:
Having always been moved by the American and British Jazz & Pop music, I thought it would be neat to combine music from composers in these genres who have inspired me throughout the years, with my own style and background as a Norwegian composer. Thus the idea was born to create a CD which combines my orchestrations of great tunes from American and British masters with my own compositions written in the same style. I hope you will all enjoy listening to this music as much as we enjoyed creating it!

This project was made possible with support from the following sponsors:

Tono (Ascap), Norway
Norwegian Fund for Performing Artists (FFUK), Norway
American Music Center (AMC), USA
Norwegian Organization of Popular Authors (Nopa), Norway
