The acclaimed English pedal steel guitarist BJ Cole joins the Norwegian jazz/folk group 1982 on an album of improvised chamber music. 1982 is made up of fiddler Nils Økland and organist Sigbjørn Apeland (who have recorded together for ECM) alongside drummer Øyvind Skarbø.

BJ Cole can without a doubt be called a living legend. He has been an active musician since the early 1970s within a wide range of genres from pop and rock to jazz and more experimental music. His list of credits is substantial and impressive, to say the least. He has played on albums and toured with Sting, T. Rex, Bjørk, Emmylou Harris, Elton John, Iggy Pop, REM, Brian Eno, Luke Vibert, David Sylvian, Roy Harper and countless others.

Fiddler Nils Økland has a background as a folk musician, and is renowned internationally for his innovative playing style. His solo albums on the ECM and Rune Grammofon labels have received glowing reviews. Sigbjørn Apeland plays church organ and harmonium, and holds Norway's only doctorate in ethnomusicology. He is known for operating at the point where folk music, church music and improvisational music intersect. Drummer Øyvind Skarbø has studied with Terje Isungset and has undertaken study tours to Nigeria and Cuba. He plays with BMX, Kresten Osgood, Per Jørgensen and the Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson.

Personnel: BJ Cole (pedal steel guitar), Nils Økland (hardanger fiddle, violin), Sigbjørn Apeland (harmonium), Øyvind Skarbø (drums)
