In December the saxophonist the two musicians start their concert tour in conjunction with the launch of their new CD “In this sweet Christmas season”. During the tour, they also visit Skien, Oslo and Trondheim before they go to Russia. The music consists of new and old Christmas songs with perhaps unexpected twists. The two improvising musicians create a muted landscape where folk music and jazz meet both famous and unknown Christmas songs. Rokkones and Baugerød alternate the sound potential in the church room and the dynamic range of organ and saxophone combination.
