Karl Seglem - Som Spor

posted by Jon-Trygve on 08.05.15 10:03 in Music Reviews Print  

"Som spor" is yet another strong album by a musician that creates music like no one else. And he just keeps getting better at it!

Karl Seglem is on a mission. And he has been since he and percussionist Terje Isungset formed the duo Isglem in 1987 and started his own "Sogn-a-song" project in 1988.

His mission and main project has been to move in the landscape between folk music and jazz and combine these musical styles in new and interesting ways.

Over the years since the late 80s his project has been documented through many albums, both in his own name, with the duo Isglem and the trio "Utla" with Isungset and fiddle player Håkon Høgemo.



This is not to say that the folk music /jazz merge is the only direction Seglem has been working in.



Seglem and Isungset were among the very pioneers of the Norwegian free jazz scene with their Isglem duo when they started.



Seglem is also no stranger ...


* The DPM Rating System
When we rate an album or concert etc we rate it on the "Huzzah!" system. A score can be between 1 and 3 huzzahs:
1 Huzzah! - The reviewer likes it. You should give it a listen!
2 Huzzah! - The reviewer recommends it - and is delighted it is part of his/her collection
3 Huzzah! - The reviewer strongly recommends it - and it has already entered heavy rotation on his/her personal playlists.

On rare occasions there may be a 0 Huzzah! review. The reasons will be explained in the article. On equally rare occasions you may even see a 4 Huzzah ... well explain that another time :)

We dont do negative reviews because we review what we like.
