Karl Seglem is described as one of the most exciting contemporary tenor saxophonists and composers in Norway. He has consistently extended musical frontiers with his original perspectives and daring improvisational style.

In combining Norway's rich folk music traditions with his own mode of expression he creates a modern soundscape where improvisation and composition are given equal weight. His saxophone tone blazes a fresh trail through his innovative use of breath, resonance and syncopation. Seglem also plays the Norwegian goat horns. His music ranges across the entire spectrum from folk to free form, and is inspired by everything from the world beat to the Nordic landscape.

In addition to his many CD releases with different ensembles, he has composed and performed several other works, and has produced a number of CDs for Norwegian and Swedish artists. He was awarded the EDVARD prize in 1998 for his work "Tya", and have received other National and local prizes for his work.

Karl Seglem has toured Norway and Scandinavia, and played in Germany, England, Irland, Japan, Bulgaria, Italy, Iceland, The Pharaoe Islands, USA among oher countries.

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
