  • Description

    'One For John!' is a homage to the great Norwegian baritone saxophonist John Pal Inderberg, a veteran of, not only the Scandinavia jazz scene, but also internationally through collaborations with such musicians as Gil Evans, Lee Konitz, and others. "It has long been a big dream to play with him, and now the dream has come true. This music is inspired by the American pianist Ahmad Jamal and especially his trio in the late 1950s with drummer Vernel Fournier and bassist Israel Cosby. Their trio sound has been a great inspiration for me, with their elegant swinging cool jazz, beautifully arranged with playful spontaneity - pure magic!

    One For John! can in many ways be heard as an extension of my two previous albums, thus completing a trilogy. However this time, the standards have been replaced by original compositions. In collaboration with Frederik Villmow, all but one song has been composed especially for this project. It is with great pleasure that we can now share this music with you and we hope that you will enjoy the album." - Andreas Dreier
