This Tuesday, Norway’s national broadcasting company NRK launched their new radio channel P13, aimed at a young adult audience that often falls in between their mainstream P1 and youth-oriented P3 channels. The opening was celebrated with a live broadcast from Vulkan Arena in Oslo featuring Atlanter with special guests Hanne Kølstø, Anne Lise Frøkedal – and a horn section led by yours truly. For this I was joined by the brilliant Erik Johannessen on trombone, Hanna Paulsberg on tenor sax, and Kristoffer Alberts on baritone.

The guys in Atlanter are good friends of mine, and I know their music well (check out their brilliant album Vidde). I had a lot of fun writing and rehearsing arrangements for the gig. As well as their hits, the set also included two new songs made especially for the occasion.

I’ve just been watching the live broadcast and I have to say I think it sounds pretty good – can’t wait for the next gig!!
