Morten Gunnar Larsen (born 1 October 1955) is a Norwegian jazz musician (piano) and composer, well known for several stride piano recordings and collaborations.

Larsen studied classical piano at Norges Musikkhøgskole (1978). In 1975 he made his debut recording, 'Classic Rags and Stomps', for which he won the Spellemannprisen in 1976. He next founded Ophelia Ragtime Orchestra in 1977 and performed with stride pianist Eubie Blake, to whom Larsen composed 'Memories of Eubie'. Larsen worked in New Orleans over longer periods of time, resulting in a tour and the performance of 'One mo' time' (1979–81) written by Vernel Bagneris.

This recording is a wonderful example of Larsen as a performer, performing works by Piazzolla, Gottschalk, Ernesto Nazareth and many others, creating a toe-tapping disc which will have you listening again and again.
