Read "The Ground" reviewed by Ollie Bivens

Sure to be on many best of lists, The Ground is helping point the way forward for jazz music worldwide. The eleven chamber jazz tracks, all composed by Gustavsen, never stray far from blues and gospel music chords and voicings, and they produce a bountiful buffet. The piano trio adds a bit of Satie ("Tears Transforming"), ...

Tord Gustavsen Trio: The Ground

Read "The Ground" reviewed by Eric J. Iannelli

ECM considers pianist Tord Gustavsen to be the least “Nordic" of the several Norwegian artists on its roster.

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.
