Town Hall Forum
In-person* 
$10-30

Norwegian-born pianist Tord Gustavsen is known for his radically stripped-down honest artistry which has been variously described as memorable, haunting, and poetic. In his own words Gustavsen says he “works to explore, integrate and serve a holy trinity of emotional intensity, elegance, and mediative musical breathing.” His most recent album release, Opening on ECM Records in April, 2022, has been described by London Jazz News as a “quietly beguiling release. .. there’s an artistry to Gustavsen’s composition, a skill in their execution, and a warmth to their spirit that keeps the listener engaged.” Gustavsen weaves traditions from Scandinavian folk music, gospel, Caribbean music, and jazz to create stunningly compelling music that stays with you long after the listening.

Joining Gustavsen (piano, electronics), are Steinar Raknes (bass), and Jarle Vespestad (drums).
