Arild Andersen is a renowned musician both in his homelamd of Norway and Internationally and is
no stranger to the Blue lamp where he has played with his trio including Tommy Smith and Paulo
Vinaccia. This time he brings a completely different group which includes vocalist Kirsten Bråten

Arild Andersen met Kirsten for the first time in 1989 to perform the commission work “Sagn” for
Vossajazz in 1990. In the band was Nana Vasconcelos, perc; Bendik Hofseth, sax; Bugge
Wesseltoft ,piano and Frode Alnæs, guitar. This band recorded two albums “Sagn” and “ Arv” The
last one with Eivind Aarset on guitar and Paolo Vinaccia on additional percussion and played
concerts in New York , Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and also around Europe and Scandinavia

Over the years Kirsten Bråten Berg and Arild kept contact and did several concerts with different
settings and a lot of duo concerts and have now formed a new group which includes Arild’s trio
Rose Window with Kirsten on vocals. The music is based on folk music from Setesdal and
Telemark, and from the west coast of Norway. Songs that Eduard Grieg used in his compositions
and arrangements.

The trio recorded “The Rose Window” live at Gutersloh Theatre in April 2016 as part of a series
called European Jazz Legends which featured 15 of Europe’s best musicians.
Norwegian double-bassist Arild Andersen’s sound – a blend of nimble improv and long-note
reverberations like a thunderous hum – has long enriched European jazz, but his work as a
composer and bandleader (with a fledgling Jan Garbarek in the 70s, for starters) has been just as
