New album from Dr Bekken.

Upright Piano

Upright Piano is an organic and untreated recording from Bar Moskus in Trondheim, with the audience present. The recording shows Bekken’s breadth as a performer and composer, and clearly refers to both his inspirational encounter with New Orleans and traditional Norwegian tones from Finnskogen. Most of all, Bekken shows enormous competence on his instrument, which makes the performance completely free, and the boundaries between what is improvisation and actual melody are invisible

This is clearly some of the core of the pelvis; Superior technical skills that allow complete freedom, as well as a heart that knocks all the music with a "blue mood" in it. Bekken is a self-written artist at the Blue Mood label.

Bekken has through his three solo recordings at Blue Mood / Grappa (Hardcore Piano / Grand Piano / Upright Piano) and the classics; ”Songs from a Forest” and ”Slaveriet” with Richard Gjems clearly demonstrated that genre limits are for pedants and that a free, competent approach to instruments as well as melodies makes the experience of his piano and repertoire universal and groundbreaking.
