In The Country belongs to no musical world as their music contains inspiration from a lot of different genres.


Best known for being the orchestra in Susanna and the Magical Orchestra, Morten Qvenild has been a member of both Shining and Jaga Jazzist and is a long term member of Solveig Slettahjell’s Slow Motion Orchestra. He formed In The Country with bass-player Roger Arntzen and drummer Pål Hausken at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo in 2003.


Since then, they have been selected best young jazz artists in Norway, played concerts in Europe, USA and Asia and, released three albums and a concert to much critical acclaim. Downbeat called their debut album “one of the finest and most arresting albums to come out of Europe,” and their latest album “Whiteout” was voted one of the “Best Releases of 2009.”
