“It’s formidable and must have been like a revelation in concert”
Roy Ervin Solstad, Stereopluss, about Nunatak
“A full score has rarely been this obvious”
Svein Andersen, Aftenposten, about Nunatak
“This (Nunatak) is great art and almost unearthly to listen to - pure magic.”
“Karl is such an imaginative musician. I love the way his music makes me feel I’m in a smokey jazz cafe one minute, and a deserted valley the next. Truly haunting and innovative.”
BBC Radio 3
"Karl Seglem has long established himself as one of Norway´s most exciting saxophonists and effectively detrhoned Jan Garbarek"
"Perhaps more than any other Norwegian musician, including Jan Garbarek, Karl Seglem has been succesful in working towards a confluence of the strong folkloric traditions of Norway and jazz"
"A National Music Treasure"
“At the heart is Seglem’s passionate yet restrained blowing. The more I listen to this, the more subtle detail I hear, and the brighter this fine session shines for me.”
“There are a number of people operating in these murky jazz-folk waters, not without some measure of success, but apart from Jan Garbarek at his best there is virtually no-one who approaches Karl Seglem’s eloquence and power.”
"One of the finest voices in Nordic Jazz"
