Norwegian pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen’s music continues to evolve, reaching out to ever-growing audiences worldwide with an enchanting blend of memorable melody, subtle groove and musical space, combining both gentleness and depth.
His latest album on ECM Records sees him return to his classic piano trio format, embracing the pianist’s concept of full-sounding ‘Nordic Blues’, with a series of new compositions in dialogue with ancient Scandinavian hymns and striking re-workings of Bach Chorales.
Nothing less than magical. Downbeat
