Tradition and modernity in an alluring split gig at Victoria.
Misha Alperin is a professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music, and has educated and advised several generations of Norwegian jazz musicians. When he himself was a young musician in the Soviet Union, he looked to Western music traditions and jazz in particular. Later on he has been looking back on Eastern European folk music, and the interaction between the two traditions is always present in his music.

The duo Steinar Raknes & Tore Brunborg recently released the beautiful album Backcountry. Raknes is one of Norway's most – musically speaking – well-travelled performers, just as comfortable in Argentinian tango, Indian ragas and Americana as he is in Jazz. Tore Brunborg, known for his distinct and beautiful saxophone sound, has been a pillar in Norwegian jazz for decades.
