Goat horn instruments on display, front cover for Jazzbukkbox


Karl Seglem Acoustic Quartet
Release date

Karl Seglem celebrates 30 years as a musician with a commemorative release.

Karl Seglem is a pioneering and ever-searching musician and composer. The music he presents in this box set, commemorating 30 years as a freelance musician, is unparalleled. With a fascination for the unique sounds of the Hardanger fiddle and the tones of the bukkehorn (goat horn), Karl Seglem began, over 20 years ago, to merge the sounds of these instruments with an electric and electronic world that allows ample room for improvisation.

The commemorative box set, JazzBukkBox, is distinctive and powerful! Within this collection, one will discover personal and boundary-pushing improvisations from some of the foremost folk and jazz musicians in the country. It encompasses jazz, world music, folk, and at times, a rather rock-infused style.

On the album Lærad, Karl Seglem has challenged himself and collaborated with a star-studded ensemble of Norwegian musicians, delivering a diverse and intricate album that spans a wide range of styles. Building upon Seglem's manipulation of various bukkehorns and his mastery of the instrument, together they have crafted an album where the bukkehorn takes on entirely new dimensions.

WorldJazz is an electric and energetic album, featuring tight and powerful melodic lines, riffs, and lively beats. Personal and liberating improvisations from some of the leading folk and jazz musicians in the country are gathered on this album. With different ensembles, there is a cohesive synergy and expression throughout. The music transcends genres in the best sense of the word.

Lastly, the album Live in Germany serves up melodious Norwegian jazz brimming with energy, drawn from live recordings during Karl Seglem's tour in Germany in the autumn of 2013. The album comprises nine compositions, seamlessly blending new material with selections from his two previous and highly acclaimed releases. This is chamber jazz—fragile yet powerful, permeated with Seglem's unmistakable atmosphere. The quartet delivers a unique sound that aligns with the language of Nordic jazz, a language that Seglem himself spearheads in further development.
