We’ve listened to the Norwegian tenor and tenor saxophonist at Jazz Fest for the first time in 2007 and later in 2014, when he held a solo concert at 18th Jazz Fest presenting his solo project Dwell Time. The Sarajevo concert was broadcasted by Norwegian National Radio and later released on CD as Live in Sarajevo.
