Pianist Tord Gustavsen has released three albums on ECM Records with his trio; "Changing Places" (2003), "The Ground" (2005), and "Being There" (2007). While relating to fields like Scandinavian folk music, gospel, Caribbean music and cool jazz alike, the trio presents a unique universe of lyricism and subtle funkiness.

In 2008, Tord launches his new project, Tord Gustavsen Ensemble with a commissioned work for the Vossajazz Festival in Norway, followed by a few selected performances leading up to a new recording 2009. Tord also plays in duo and trio formats with the musicians in the new ensemble.
