MIC’s Listen to Norway profile series continues with the historically important compilation series Portrait of a Norwegian Jazz Artist Vol. 1 – 7


Portrait of a Norwegian Jazz Artist is a series of unique recordings that create an important historical platform documenting more than 60 years of Norwegian jazz. Portrait of a Norwegian Jazz Artist Vol. 1-7 features selected previously unreleased recordings by Arvid Gram Paulsen, Mikkel Flagstad, Kristian Bergheim, Bjarne Nerem, Bjørn Johansen, Einar Iversen, Harald Bergersen, Kjell Karlsen and Rowland Greenberg – recordings which up until now has not been available for a wider audience. This extensive series gives extraordinary insight in the post-war jazz scene in Norway, and preserves the work by some of the scene’s unique voices. As much as it is an important historical document, Portrait of a Norwegian Jazz Artist is also a hard-swinging, energetic, highly varied, inspiring and rewarding affair. Obligatory listening!
