I Jazz - som sagt, journalist Terje Mosnes has collected 130 of his interviews with jazz musicians and other players in the jazz field, published over a period of almost 50 years in Dagbladet as well as in Lyd & Bilde, Jazznytt and on the Norwegian Jazz Forum's website jazzinorge.no .
First and foremost, we meet performers from the first post-war generations – Jan Garbarek, Terje Rypdal, Arild Andersen – and the many younger musicians who further contributed to placing Norway on the international jazz map in the decades around the turn of the millennium. We also meet some of those who were previously out - Gunnar Sønstevold, Karin Krog, Bjarne Nerem, Jon Christensen - and together these interviews form one of countless possible stories about the adventurous development of Norwegian jazz over the past 60 years.
Terje Mosnes (b. 1947) has been a music journalist since 1966 and has a background from, among others, POPrevyen, NRK/TV and Dagbladet (1966 2014). He has written two novels, three books about the Molde International Jazz Festival, the book about Bendik Hofseth's album IX in Falck Forlag's series about the 100 best Norwegian records in Norwegian history, and is part author of Karin Krog – Det måtte bli Jazz!
The book also contains a foreword by Audun Vinger.
There have been many good books about Norwegian jazz. But that Jazz - Som sagt will become a reference work and a kind of summary of Norwegian jazz, we have great faith in. Get this 1.7 (!) kilo of 720 (!!) pages.
