Pocket Corner has history back to 1986 in Norwegian jazz. During these years, the band with its many line-ups, has been involved in tours, festivals, recordings, television and radio programs. Didrik Ingvaldsen is the leader and has led the band throughout these years.

“Pocket corner is in the landscape between composed material and improvisation. The music moves from dense “grooves” to open landscape. And they have found their corner both in Norwegian jazz and also internationally. “

As of today, Pocket Corner is a quartet that still works in the same genre.
