Eple Trio

Andreas Ulvo - piano
Sigurd Hole - bass
Jonas Howden Sjøvaag - drums, keys, electronics

NORCD is continuing its efforts to promote young performers within the ever-expanding genre called jazz. We are proud to be able to present this piano trio with a unique sound. The members of the Eple trio have been working together for many years, and have thus developed an unusual level of empathy in their interplay. These three musicians are operating at the interface between jazz, chamber music and folk music. The tradition established by Swedish musician Jan Johansson has, perhaps, been the primary inspiration for their music.

Tord Gustavsen Trio: The Other Side

Read "The Other Side" reviewed by David Bruggink

In spiritual parlance, “the other side" often refers to a realm beyond death. Tord Gustavsen is no stranger to integrating music to religious practice, performing frequent “Musikkmeditasjon" concerts in Norwegian churches.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
