Tord Gustavsen: piano
Sigurd Hole: bass
Jarle Vespestad: drums
Tord Gustavsen is on a constant search for a fresh and radically stripped-down honest beauty in music. The band works to explore, integrate and serve a holy trinity of emotional intensity, elegance, and mediative musical breathing. Tord has released eight albums under his own name in trio, quartet and quintet formats.
In 2022, a new album by Tord Gustavsen Trio is on its way; ‘Opening’ will be released on ECM Records April 2022, introducing the artistry of bassist Steinar Raknes alongside Tord Gustavsen on piano and electronics, and Jarle Vespestad on drums. The trio will do extensive touring during 2022—’23, including concerts at Montreal and Vancouver Jazz Festivals, London Jazz Festival, Molde Jazz Festival, and a number of other concert halls, churches, and clubs in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, UK, Ireland, as well as in their native Norway.
