Live at the Bimhuis with Konrad Koselleck big band

On the 15th of june 2015 I did a concert with Konrad Koselleck and his bigband at the Bimhuis. He arranged some of my favorite Norwegian tunes especially for this show and I think he did an amazing job. 

Here you can see a fragment from "Samba des Furies" - originally W. Gluck and jazzified by Konrad Koselleck and the Norwegian folk tune "I Ola Dalom" Grieg version with K. Koselleck arrangement.
