“Kungen” by In The Country

In The Country is a piano trio consisting of pianist Morten Qvenild, bassist Roger Arntzen and drummer Pål Hausken. Morten Qvenild is probably best known for being the orchestra in Susanna and the Magical Orchestra but has plenty more to show for. He has been a member of both Shining and Jaga Jazzist and is since long a member of Solveig Slettahjells Slow Motion Orchestra. He formed In The Country with Ballrogg and Chrome Hill bassist Roger Arntzen and Christer Knutsen drummer Pål Hausken at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo in 2003. Since then they have been selected best young jazz artists in Norway, played concerts in Europe and USA and released two albums on the prestigeous Rune Grammofon label (“This Was The Pace Of My Heartbeat” in 2004, and “Losing Stones, Collecting Bones” in 2006) to much critical acclaim. Downbeat called their debut album “one of the finest and most arresting albums to come out of Europe” that year, and All About jazz has already put In The Country´s latest album “Witheout” (2009) on their “best of 2009″ list.
