Now a Louisiana resident, Ole Oddlokken hails from Lillehammer, Norway and has played saxophone since the age of nine. While taking band classes and participating in after school and summertime music programs, he also learned songs like "When the Saints Go Marching In" on the family's Hammond B3 at home. He moved on to adult orchestras and jazz in big bands. While studying fine art in Norway, he met his wife Nonney, a New Orleans native attending fine art classes at the same school. The two would start a family and eventually move to Louisiana in '94. Join us as we sit and talk with Ole about the origins of his sound and their influence on his role in bands throughout New Orleans.
