OCMF2019 gets off to an exciting start with the internationally celebrated Norwegian pianist/composer Tord Gustavsen, whose distinctive, mesmerising chamber jazz has produced a hugely successful series of albums for the ECM label. With 2018's The Other Side he returned to the trio format with long-time collaboratorVespestad and new bassist Hole, blending his trademark emotional intensity, subtle rhythmic grooves, and his own memorable melodic gift,with Norwegian folk tunes and the Lutheran chorales of J S Bach.
'This trio's ability to capture doubt, joy and anxiety in a few notes is breathtaking.'
