Berg, Gunnar Andreas - Snowdawn CD

First time ever reissue of this incredibly little known album from 1980 that is very much in the 70s ECM kinda vibe. Berg, a guitarist, is a monster with great tone, and this is easily comparable to some things that Terje Rypdal was doing at the same time (as it says below), although I also hear parallels to Phil Miller and In Cahoots. Hard to believe that it was this obscure.

“Gunnar Andreas Berg is a Norwegian super guitarist, teacher, and owner of the record company Bergland Productions. He is educated at the Department of Music (NTNU) as well as Berklee College of Music in Boston. Later he was appointed at Jazzlinja as amanuensis.
He has played for a number of years with Åge Aleksandersen, but as a solo artist he has operated in a more jazzy landscape - not too far from what Terje Rypdal has wandered around in since the 70s. Berg has released four solo albums himself. Snowdawn was his first, recorded in Nidaros Studio with Jan Erik Kongshaug behind the controls.”
