“Norwegian composer, guitarist Jon Thorstensen has gathered around him a band of superb musicians to deliver this modern day Jazz / Funk classic. Positively oozing with quality, ‘Secret Place’ is everything you would expect from such an accomplished ensemble. It’s creative, inventive it’s familiar and above all, it’s class.”
