Qui il musicista scandinavo si presenta per la prima volta alla testa di un classico quartetto, che vede al pianoforte Kristjan Randalu, quarantenne estone cresciuto in Germania, ...

Trygve Seim: Helsinki Songs

Read "Helsinki Songs" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

Before revealing its more inert, contemplative rewards, Norwegian saxophonist Trygve Seim opens Helsinki Songs, his sixth disc for ECM as a leader/co-leader, with the rolling, pop-ish dance of “Sol's Song," sounding immediately recognizable, like a well-known theme song to some long gone sitcom or movie.
