The guitar player Christer Fredriksen is finally out with his first CD under his own name. Urban Country is a title that refers to a musical description of an urban scenery. The CD was mixed and mastered in Rainbow Studio by Jan Erik Kongshaug.
Christer Fredriksen´s music is instrumental, can be defined as jazz, but has clear elements of other musical styles. As a guest on this recording, is the renowned saxophone player Bendik Hofseth (known from Mike Manieri´s Steps Ahead). Bendik adds his well known lyrical touch to Christer´s compositions.
Christer is educated with a Masters in Rhythmical Music from the University in Agder and he has completed much research on sound; how different electric guitarists create their sound. In fact, he plays through self-made guitar amplifiers.
