About Krokofant

Krokofant is a progressive free jazz-rock instrumental trio from Kongsberg, Bukserud, Norway, comprised of guitarist Tom Hasslan, saxophonist Jørgen Mathisen, and drummer Axel Skalstad. They take their name from a mythical creature out of a popular Norwegian children's song, described as "a lumbering trumpeting beast with a fearsome array of teeth in its snapping jaws...," a dead cross between an elephant and a crocodile. It describes their sound perfectly. The trio quickly gained popularity in Norway as part of a burgeoning 21st century jazz-rock scene. Their self-titled debut album was issued by Rune Grammofon in March of 2014. ~ Thom Jurek
