Through an idea as simple as geniously concieved, Berg & co squeezes the world together in a packed trio format, where the audience meet voices from four continents through the movie screen behind the trio.

Nils Berg - video, tenor saxophone, flute, bass clarinet, Christopher Cantillo - drums, Josef Kallerdahl - electric bass and double bass

”The Fellini of Swedish jazz” was one of the first press words after the debut in 2009. To this day, the band has toured the US, Canada, Europe and Japan, released three records, two feature movies and recently the single The Missing Piece - featuring, among other, the exile pakistani musician Imran Mohammad, singing his heart out from a downtown Oslo apartment.

"Berg transcends conceptual cleverness; the tunes and the performances would be fantastic even without the video cameos." DOWNBEAT
