About the album
ECM's already broad Nordic panorama is further expanded with the debut of a trio of young Norwegians. Their subtle, serious, original music shows an astute awareness of the achievements of Scandinavian jazz, yet also looks beyond it. The internal dynamic of the band derives from the adroit balancing of its members' musical preferences. Christian Wallumrød is inspired by Paul Bley's daring use of space, Arve Henriksen makes free improvisation his first priority, and Hans-Kristian Kjos Sørensen is recognized as the foremost classical percussionist in Norway today.
