Popular jazz trio back in the UK for new tour

 Date:12/10/2007 - 21/10/2007

 Location:England, Bury St Edmunds

Tord Gustavsen Trio, renowned for a fresh and creative approach to their genre, are back in the UK again for a tour following their successful appearance at the Bury St Edmunds Festival in May.

In the four years that have elapsed since the recording of a debut album that proved both a popular and a critical success, the Tord Gustavsen Trio have toured extensively, crystallising the musical approach and developing new compositions. The second album 'The Ground' was released in 2005. Now, in 2007 the trio is in for the completion of a unique trilogy with a release named "Being There".

The trio's approach is developed further on this record. It's still very melodic and romantic music. It still displays a striking, spacious 'Nordic-Caribbean-gospel-bluesy' fresh feel while presenting Tord Gustavsen's original compositions. But the trio employs more dynamics and explores some new musical fields in its interaction on this recording. The musicians are just as un-compromising in their search for beauty as they are in their search for a creative approach with fresh phrasing and imaginative playing.
