“This is a devotional project, and the way in which the words transcend the boundaries between forms and traditions is important for me. But it’s also a pure musical experience.” Tord Gustavsen

“A genuine and profound listening experience . . . Gustavsen’s most bewitchingly beautiful work to date.” Stuart Nicholson, Jazzwise

 

Norwegian pianist Tord Gustavsen’s latest trio builds upon his long musical association with drummer Jarle Vespestad, and introduces German-Afghan vocalist Simin Tander, and explores the tradition of Norwegian church music with Afghan poetry. The combination of the intimacy of Tander’s voice, Gustavsen’s melodically inventive piano and discreet electronics, and Vespestad’s patient, textural drumming takes a jazz approach to the powerful language of divine sound.

Their album “What Was Said” was recently released by ECM Records.
