Tord Gustavsen Trio

Tord Gustavsen Trio

album release : The Other Side (ECM, 2018)

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. 2018 sees the release of the latest album of his trio on ECM Records featuring some of Tord’s original compositions in dialogue with ancient Scandinavian hymns and three striking re-workings of J. S. Bach’s Chorales. Let’s enjoy once more Tord’s paradoxically full sounding simplicity, which he combines with open, impressionist harmonic landscapes.
