Tord Gustavsen Trio

Tord Gustavsen Trio

album presentation : Opening (ECM Records, 2022)

Norwegian pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen's music continues to evolve, reaching out with memorable melodies, subtle grooves, musical space, and both gentleness and depth.

With Opening, the ECM trio showcase a new perspective into Scandinavian folk hymns, gospel, chorale and jazz.

«I have the clear feeling that stretching out and being creative happens organically, avoiding alienation and stiffness, when done in energetic connection with my roots – with the groundedness and sensuality of the hymns and the spirituals and the lullabies I grew up with.»

The addition of a new bassist brings a fresh dimension to the trio, inspiring them to experiment with innovative sound and technique approaches.

Flagey, ECM Records

 “A trilogy [that] could be the most essential jazz document of the last ten years. Sublime.” — [The Independent, UK]
