Dag Arnesen memorizes his childhood when the music of Edvard Grieg, Ole Bull and these folk songs were an important part of his musical identity. He remembers well being woken by the sound of his parents playing these songs on violin and piano on Sunday mornings at home in Bergen. With this musical background and his experience as one of Norway´s leading jazz pianists over the past several decades, Dag Arnesen is the perfect pianist to interpret this repertoire in the jazz piano trio format.

Dag Arnesen has chosen some of the most well known traditional songs and classical melodies in Norway and rearranged them in a very personal and creative way to fit his jazz trio. These are just fantastic songs that will be with us forever.
