Northscape is a group of five young talented Scandinavians
who met in Boston in fall 1998. In spite of their various musical backgrounds
which range from pop and punk to classical and jazz, the group has a very
significant expression: the sound is set with a clearly nordic tone.
Northscape's repertoire is a mixture of their own original compositions
and well-known classic songs from Beatles to Stevie Wonder. The quintet
arranges and interprets the pop songs, turning them into jazz standards
