Background

A departure for bass virtuoso Andersen, the nine-piece band assembled for Hyperborean brings together - for the very first time - two "young lions" of Nordic jazz, Tore Brunborg and Bendik Hofseth, and sets their dramatic saxophone exchanges against his writing for strings, played by the Cikada Quartet, distinguished contemporary music players. If you like Hyperborean, then you'd probably like: Arild Andersen, Sagn Arild Andersen/Ralph Towner/Nana Vasconcelos, If You Look Far Enough Masqualero, Re-Enter Misha Alperin, North Story Keith Jarrett, Arbour Zena
