About the album

This double-CD is pianist Terje Bjørklund’s jazz debut under his own name. He was one of Norway’s greatest jazz musicians during the late sixties and seventies, for many years playing regularly with Jan Garbarek and Karin Krog in addition to working with his own trio. He was the first choice on piano when American jazz stars were touring and playing gigs in Norway, and Bjørklund has worked with Dexter Gordon, Phil Woods, Johhny Griffin, Art Farmer, Clifford Jordan, Art Taylor, Don Byas, Clark Terry and many more. Later on he quit his jazz piano career to focus on teaching and classical composition. 35 years ago, he founded the jazz department at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, where he still works as teacher of composition. 

The CD consists of two parts: CD 1: The Wedding is a work written for chamber orchestra (TrondheimSolistene) with Arve Henriksen, Nils Olav Johansen, Kjersti Huke and Tore Brunborg as the main soloists, with Bjørklund at the piano.
CD 2 is a mix of tracks with outstanding Norwegian and international artists: It is a collection of music spanning the period 1972–1982 with a very distinguished list of co-players: Dexter Gordon, Nils-Petter Molvær, Tore Brunborg, Jon Christensen, Knut Riisnæs and many more.
