At the webpage of The Arctic Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Chet Baker spiller ikke her* (Chet Baker doesn't play here):

"For years, he has been searching for the perfect note. The one that is so pure nobody knows where it comes from. Daniel’s life was changed when he was 13 years old and heard the sound of Chet Baker's trumpet. Since then he has hated and loved, longed and fought for the note that is purer than anything else. Now, he's dead, and he looks back at everything he forsook. Could life have been different without Chet Baker?"

Press coverage

Bjørn H. Larsen, Nydelig poesi om tonen og døden (literally: Beautiful poetry about the note and death), Nordlys, January 14 2010:

"Music and language are the two pages of the same note sheet. Here they melt together and become great art, created by great actors in each their field; beautiful and poetic. It moves something deep within."
