John P%C3%A5l Inderberg
John Pål Inderberg (born 6 August 1950 Steinkjer, Norway) is a versatile saxophonist with a natural spontaneity of expression and one of the leading traditional musicians in Norway. His playing synthethises many different styles, not least when in partnership with Norwegian and American jazz musicians - players as contrasting as Gil Evans and Lee Konitz.
As an earlier member of the new cool quartet, Inderberg gave new popularity to the collective art of improvisation in the 1950s. Inderberg's soprano and baritone sax can be heard on a wide range of recordings.
He has toured and recorded with Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh (saxophone), Chet Baker (trumpet), Bob Brookmeyer (trombone), as well as Siri Gellein and Henning Sommerro.
He was previously member of Gil Evans' Scandinavian ensemble and has put his mark on several recordings with poet Jan Erik Vold.
Inderberg is a member of the EBU-band in 1980 and 1998. Besides his performing career, he holds the post Teacher of Improvisation and joint head of the jazz department at the Trondheim Musikkonservatorium, NTNU. He has received the Norwegian Jazz Forum award in 1991, known as the Buddy statuette. He was also awarded the Lindemanprisen 2010.
