In a different world the name Trygve Seim would be as familiar to you as that of Jan Garbarek or Joshua Redman. With an unparalleled sense of melody Seim knows how to bring out the best in his fellow musicians, making a true joy to follow all his intriguing detours when playing his instrument.
With his lyrical compositions it is no wonder he got well deserved attention from Manfred Eicher, resulting in no less than 22 recordings for ECM. Joining Seim is a hand picked group, each one them world class instrumentalists in their own right.
