MUSICIAN Born:

Tord Gustavsen

This is music that sings, at once gentle and robust. Lyrical, immediately memorable songs, songs of an appealing freshness, yet sophisticated in their involvement with the melodic line. In the seven years that have elapsed since the recording of a debut album that proved both a popular and a critical success, Tord Gustavsen has toured extensively, crystallizing the musical approach and developing new compositions. The second trio album "The Ground" was released in 2005. In 2007 the trio completed a unique trilogy with a release named "Being There". In 2009, Tord changed into a different and somewhat more flexible ensemble form, releasing the album "Restored, Returned" with a line-up including Kristin Asbjørnsen (vocals), Tore Brunborg (saxophones), Mats Eilertsen (bass), Jarle Vespestad (drums)
