Trygve Seim

Trygve Seim was born in Oslo in 1971, and took up the saxophone at the age of 14. His earliest inspirations were, he says, Jan Garbarek, electric Miles Davis, and ECM's documentation of European improvising. Seim studied jazz at the Trondheim Conservatory.

Terje Rypdal: Odyssey: In Studio and In Concert

Read "Terje Rypdal: Odyssey: In Studio and In Concert" reviewed by John Kelman
