Tor Einar Bekken (Dr Bekken) is one of Norway's foremost representatives of traditional blues/jazz piano, and through his long career he has studied the typical styles within this musical direction. As one of very few practitioners in the country, he has basic and in-depth insights into this significant branch of modern music. "Upright Piano" is an organic 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 a sidelight to traditional Norwegian tones from Finnskogen. Pianist, singer and ukulele player Dr. Bekken is a musician who is interested in the whole history of jazz. A lifelong dedication to the art of traditional blues driven piano has given him a mastery of that idiom which few players can grasp, much less deliver. Bekken works within the field of modern, free improvisation, citing pianists like Don Pullen, Bobby Few and Charles Gayle as the central sources of inspiration. Bekken has played jazz and blues piano since childhood, and has absorbed all the nuances in the process.
