IN THE COUNTRY – Norwegian Piano Trio
Morten Qvenild, piano
Roger Arntzen, double bass
Pål Hausken. drums
In The Country is the jazz outfit that seems impossible to decide to which musical world it belongs. ”Stylistic orthodoxy be damned”, said Downbeat and called their debut album ”one of the finest and most arresting albums to come out of Europe” that year.
All About Jazz has described them as ”some of the best music to emerge from Norway in the past half decade”.
Since the start in 2003 In The Country have played 150 concerts in 23 countries and released four albums and two DVDs on the prestigious Norwegian label Rune Grammofon, all to great critical acclaim by the worldwide press. In The Country was awarded Best Young Jazz Artists in Norway in 2004, and have been nominated for the American Independent Music Awards 2012 for their latest video.
