HANNA PAULSBERG CONCEPT (NORWAY)
Norwegian saxophonist and composer Hanna Paulsberg (Rygge, 1987) leads this quartet, active in the Norwegian jazz scene since 2010. Her two first album releases as a bandleader, Waltz for Lili (2012) and Song for Josia (2014), got very good reviews from both international press and public. In 2016 she published Eastern Smiles, her third album, which took her on a long tour all over Europe.
Paulsberg started playing the saxophone when she was sixteen years old after hearing Stan Getz and falling completely in love with his playing. After a year at Toneheim Folkehøgskole in 2007, she went on to do a bachelors degree in jazz at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim.
In 2012 she was elected to represent Norway in The European Jazz Orchestra.
The musicians in Hanna Paulsberg Concept share a common passion for beautiful melodies, open improvisation in set forms, and ‘cookin’ jazz. Their music is made up from the influences of American music and European sensitivity, resulting in a mature, personal and elegant sound, oozing passion and musical talent.
