Jazz trio to the Bury Festival

 Type:Culture, Music
 Location:England, Bury St Edmunds

Tord Gustavsen Trio, renowned for a fresh and creative approach to their genre, are one of the international attractions during the 22nd Bury St Edmunds Festival.

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, crystallizing 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.

The 22nd Bury St Edmunds Festival runs from Friday 11 May to Sunday 27 May, bringing top performers from all over the world and attracting record audiences to the historic market town at the heart of the Suffolk countryside.

This year’s Festival programme offers another enriching mix of orchestral concerts, new music, choral fusions, open-air party nights, lunchtime jazz and folk, top classical players, community workshops, dance, theatre, opera, art, film, walks, and more in some spectacular settings.
