This is becoming an obsession for me: I listened to it all the weekend long, in the plane etc. The guy is phenomenal. The best piano trio in the last few years, IMHO. Proving that sensual, spiritual jazz can come even from icy Norway.
"As silence can sometimes speak as loudly as thunder, and insofar as careful elaboration of melody can be just as compelling as more vivid expansion, Gustavsen's trio makes a clear case for the elusive power of restraint."
A bargain right now with peanut dollar on Amazon. Two more excellent cds of Tord with ECM.
