This is my own piano trio with musicians that are involved in some of Norways most interesting jazz

bands such as Norwegian grammy winner Hegge and nomineted  Megalodon Collective, Wako and

the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra. We play modern acoustic jazz, and our music is a mixture of compositions

written by myself and pure collective improvisations.

"The music is simple, beautiful and well composed tunes which goes in and out of expressive

improvisations" (Jazznytt, NO), and "the compositions reflects Mulelid's rich and melodic play" (Salt

Peanuts*, IS). The trio have since 2016 toured most of West Europe and played concerts on some of

Norways biggest jazz scenes, recorded some great live videos and released their debut album "Not

Nearly Enough To Buy A House" which got honored world wide by critics: "It took me several listens

to fully realise just how magical this album is" (The Wire, UK).   

Our first music 's released on the acknowledged record label Rune Grammofon, "a record label dedicated

to releasing work by the most adventurous and creative norwegian artists and composers".
