KJETIL MULELID TRIO
This is my own piano trio with musicians that are involved in some of Norways most interesting jazz bands as "Megalodon Collective" (Norwegian Grammy Award nomination 2016), "Hegge" (Norwegian Grammy Award nomination 2017), "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 album "Not Nearly Enough to Buy a House" is 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".
