Everybody working with music knows that the most voulnerable and unpredictable moment is that microsecond right before the first tones appear. In this video clip these seconds are eternalized at Odd Arne's concert at Romerike College, where Odd Arne with students are about to perform Duke Ellingtons "C - Jam Blues". From the left: Odd-Arne: guitar, Jan Erik: guitar, Tormod: Drums, Espen: tenorsax, Johan: guitar, Øyvind: el. bass. This is in many ways the moment of truth. Now it is up to the musicians to conquer the room and capture the moment.  
Odd-Arne received extensive media coverage in Shanghai, under his tour "China Project-98". The picture captures Odd-Arne enthusing chinese ladies (surely gentlemen too) with an elegant guitarline on his Gibson ES 175. The article together with a session on "local" TV reaching out to over 10 million chinese was on the agenda when OAJ Band made their China tour, and a consert for chinese music students at the music conservatory in Shanghai. Odd-Arne grew up near the ocean in Tromsø. One of his childhood friends, Synvis Glinn Nordin, became a painter. When Synvis held an exibition in 'Kulturhuset i Tromsø' in 1996, Odd Arne opened the exibition by holding a solo concert. The honorarium was this beautiful picture of the street where they both grew up, their childhood street 'strandvegen'
