Background

A new name in ECM's pantheon of Nordic talent, Norway's Trygve Seim is an exceptional saxophonist. Influenced by flute traditions of Asia, by free music, by his association with Edward Vesala, and by contemporary composition, he has arrived at a highly original music of his own, played here by a large ensemble brimming over with idiosyncratic improvisers. The music on "Different Rivers" is often contemplative, but it also has real power.
