His album Urban Vacation, produced by Jimmy Haslip and Jeff Lorber, Terje says, “Seeing how much work Jimmy (Haslip) and Jeff (Lorber) put into Urban Vacation has definitely inspired me to expect even more from myself as a composer, musician, and performer. It’s great to have the opportunity now to share that with more fans than ever before.” And he continues, “Jeff and Jimmy enlightened me to many new angles and concepts that made this a fantastic experience for me. It’s been a great thing to record with them and the result is a seriously kickin’ album!”
