TORD GUSTAVSEN ENSEMBLE

THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 Tord Gustavsen, piano Tore Brunborg, saxophones Mats Eilertsen, bass Jarle Vespestad, drums Pianist Tord Gustavsen has released three critically acclaimed albums on ECM Records with his trio: Changing Places (2003), The Ground (2005), and Being There (2007). The music shows traces of inspiration from sources as diverse as Scandinavian folk music, Caribbean music, early blues, gospel and hymns, and Impressionism - but all transformed and integrated into a highly original universe. Now, Tord launches the quartet version of his ensemble. The quartet is a natural prolongation of the trio work, but also adds new colours and dimensions to Tord’s music through the sensibilities of some of the finest and most intriguing players on the vibrant and eclectic Scandinavian jazz scene.
