Full of scat: Locals extra expressive at this year's Polarjazznew

The music is mostly rock and folk, but the world's northernmost jazz festival is still an art of improvisation where dogsledding and destruction of gear in -25C twilight happens. This year's lineup had locals extra verbose on-stage and off – not always a good thing.
