Norvald Dahl - bio

Norwegian born pianist Norvald Dahl (b.1978) just finished his master degree at the highly acclaimed ´Norwegian academy of music´ in Oslo. He has been touring and playing professionally for the past ten years, and is associated with groups like the "Wayne Brasel Quartet" and his own quartet, the "Norvald Dahl trio plus Jon Irabagon".

Dahl grew up with folk music and discovered the piano at early age. He soon discovered improvisation and found jazz to be the perfect vehicle for his expression. In his playing he combines influences from legends like Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans, and blends with lyricism from Norwegian folk music and with a classical tone on the piano. Dahl has also studied with american musicians like David Kikoski, Kevin Hays, Jonathan Kreisberg, Sam Yahel, Danny Grissett, and Aaron Parks.
