  • Description

    The Norwegian island of Rolla is tiny and sparsely populated - a mere 900 people live here, on 'A Place Called Home', pianist Oddgeir Berg takes us to this, his father's birthplace, for a concept album about the magic of nature, the spaces hidden in memory, and the bonds that family provides. The music was written with a new trio lineup and during a period of personal turmoil, including a cancer diagnosis for Berg's mother, and the worries which accompanied her treatment. As one would expect, the music feels intimate and pastoral, mostly slower-paced and introspective. But there are also moments of gentle exploration here as well as a beautiful bass solo by new member Audun Ramo. It is an invitation to a journey - to make any place your home.



    Available on 6-panel digipak CD + LP housed in a gatefold sleeve.



    Oddgeir Berg: keys, compositions

    Audun Ramo: double bass

    Lars Berntsen: drums
