Even Kruse Skatrud (born 18 August 1977, in Lørenskog, Norway)[1] Assistant Professor at the University of Oslo,[2] a Norwegian Jazz musician, Composer, Music arranger and Orchestra leader. He is the son of musician Harry Andersen and Marit Skatrud Andersen, married to singer-artist Anine Kruse Skatrud and son-in-law of the major Norwegian Contemporary composer Bjørn Kruse (b. 1946).

Career[edit]

He studied music and composition at Norges Musikkhøgskole (from 1998) and contributed on a series of productions with orchestras like Funky Butt,[3] Gumbo,[4] Erik Smith's Friends, Soulslave, Descarga, Soul Inc, Ensemble Denada,[5] Marinemusikken, Kringkastingsorkesteret, Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra and the originale "The Glenn Miller Orchestra". He has played with musicians like Phil Woods, Marilyn Mazur, Ray Anderson, Bobby Stewart, Eddie Daniels og Clarence Clemons, contributed to TV-shows like three Idol-orchestres (TV 2, 2003–05) and four seasons with Skal vi danse (TV 2), and solo performances with Oslo Philharmonic.[1]

In 2003 he appeared on the album Angels with the Sigurd Køhn and Nils-Olav Johansen Sextet, and joined the brass section of the band Horndogs in 2005. Jens Petter Antonsen wanted to start up a brass section and got into contact with Kruse Skatrud and Børge-Are Halvorsen. From 2005 they have participated on several albums.

In 2006 he wrote an arrangement on Odd R. Antonsen Big Band Album[6] - where Putte Wickman (1924-2006) on Clarinet and Grethe Kausland (1947-2007) on Vocals were among the soloists involved. This was the last recording of each of them on a record. This arrangement with Grethe Kausland was also played at her funeral - the title was: "Here's to life" - a celebration of life.[7]

In 2008 he wrote 4 of the arrangements[8] for Kjell Karlsen's Big Band Recording[9] In Grieg Moods - Ved Rondane, Anitras dans, I Dovregubbens hall and a composition of Kjell Karlsen performed by Bjørn Johan Muri.[10] In 2011 he played with Bergen Big Band.[11]
