Ola Asdahl Rokkones lives in Tromsø in the north of Norway, but regularly appears with bands and orchestras all over Europe. He is an independent artist, and one of few saxophonists working both within classical music, jazz and folk music.

Terje Baugerød works as organist in Ris Church in Oslo, in addition to an active career as a performer, producer and composer. He is an openminded, improvising musician and works in particular with classical music, pop, electronica and traditional music from different cultures.

Their artistic ambition of this project is to perform both new and old Christmas songs in their own, and for the audience perhaps unexpected arrangements, highlighting both improvisational elements, jazz and folk music elements. They want the audience to get a strong, and perhaps overwhelming, musical experience, taking advantage of the sound potential in the church room and the dynamic range of the combination of the organ and the tenor saxophone.
