The Kjetil Mulelid Trio released their debut album “Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House" in late 2017 on Norway's prestigious Rune Grammofon label, with its reputation for hand picking some of the best experimental electronic, jazz and improvised music from Scandinavia. Its artists have been heavily featured in magazines such as ‘The Wire’ and ‘Plan B’. Indeed, this piano trio consists of some of Norway's most exciting young jazz musicians, whose members are heavily involved in projects such as Norwegian Grammy winners ‘Hegge’ and Grammy nominees ‘Megalodon Collective,’ among other projects stemming from creative milieu in the Jazz Department of the Trondheim Conservatory of Music. Here though, the focus is pared back to the classic acoustic piano trio featuring, predominantly, Mulelid’s beguiling compositions expertly balancing energetic, rhythmically complex and harmonically rich music with beautiful evocative melodies. While the trio incorporates that sense of calm, unhurried yet constantly unfolding sound world which is distinctively Scandinavian, Mulelid, in concert with bassist Bjørn Marius Hegge and drummer Andreas Winther, effortlessly conjure additional layers, tones and textures, based upon group improvisations, and informed, in large part, by each others diverse musical experiences.
