Norwegian pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen is one of Europe’s leading jazz pianists.

Supporting the release of his tenth album on ECM records in 2024, Tord Gustavsen returns to the UK with his acclaimed trio, playing music from his new album, as well as material from previous releases.

Continuously searching for a fresh and radically stripped-down honest beauty in music, his trio explores a holy trinity of emotional intensity, elegance and mediative musical breathing.

A delicate individuality fuses with attentive listening to create magical interplay.

Tord’s special ability to integrate jazz with ‘Nordic’ reflective moods and lyrical beauty has created one of the most intriguing voices on today’s scene.

"...a delicious collage of hypnotic grooving, softly stroked gospel themes." The Guardian
