Tore Brunborg | saxophones

Tore’s approach to music is unique in the world of saxophonists. He has a strong lyrical ‘voice’ on his instrument, bridging Scandinavian folk music influences with American traditions in a very special way. He is the perfect complement to Tord's melodic playing, and their interplay has gone far beyond the normal roles of ‘soloist’ and accompaniment – they play together in an integrated ‘musical organism’.

Tore Brunborg’s experiences as a band leader and an ensemble musician cover a wide range of the most important European jazz projects through several decades, with the legendary Norwegian group Masqualero as a starting point in the 1980’s. He has played with Jon Christensen, Arild Andersen, Jon Balke, Nils Petter Molvær, Bugge Wesseltoft, Anders Jormin to name a few – and he also currently leads a quartet with British pianist John Taylor.
