Ingebrigt Håker Flaten | Back

Born in Oppdal, Norway in 1971, and now living in Austin, Texas, bassist Ingebrigt Håker Flaten didn't become involved in jazz until his 20s, but then quickly exploded on the Scandinavian free music scene. At the end of the 1990s he formed an association with Swedish reedsman Mats Gustafsson, travelling to the USA to begin work with Ken Vandermark and other leading players on the Chicago scene.

Since then he has effectively commuted across the Atlantic, building a substantial American reputation whilst continuing to work with such high powered Scandinavian groups as The Thing and the Scorch Trio.
