Tord Gustavsen Trio


Tord Gustavsen Trio


For the album ‘The Other Side’, Norwegian Tord Gustavsen returns decisively to the piano trio, with faithful drummer Jarle Vespestad, and introducing his excellent new bassist Sigurd Hole.

“This is the chill-out as a state of grace, and it can go as deep as you like. Sublime,” wrote the Independent on Sunday of the Gustavsen Trio’s Being There, released in 2007. Over the last decade Tord has experimented with other ensemble forms, but on ‘The Other Side’ - recorded at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio in January 2018 - Gustavsen is back with the format that brought him world-wide adulation when his debut album, Changing Places, was released in 2003.

Hole’s approach to his instrument, drawing on folk influences as well as modern jazz, is ideally suited to Gustavsen’s slowly-developing, deeply melodic pieces. The recording, produced by Manfred Eicher, is made available both on CD and vinyl.
