Press

" Few, if any norwegian musicians, has a more impressive list of merits than Haakon Graf. And You don't need many minutes in the company of the keyboard virtuoso to understand why worldclass musicians and artists want him on their team. Haakon Graf plays around in a LA fusion landscape with a variation that documents Graf's ability and gifts as a musician, composer and arranger. Each track provides new elements and expressions, elegant transmissions and sophisticated breaks spiced up with latin rhythms and westcoast references. It's been 15 years since Graf's last record, now he has loaded up his fusion gun and hits bullseye with a sharpshooters precision. The result is extremely enjoyable. The title track is a good example and hits the top level of the scale either you're in the car, having a drink on the terrace or just want to listen to some incredible good music. "

— Moss Avis, Knut Eigil Nesselquist

Q: Hi Haakon, Thanks for becoming a fan. Checked out your tracks. Haven't heard good clean fusion in a long time. I hope that LA has been good to you. Have a great summer. Jill~

A: Thanks Jill.. I guess the issue with LA is that it's not so much what LA can do for you, but what you can do for LA :))
