Tord Gustavsen Quartet © Hans Fredrik Asbjornsen

With the release of his first recording in 2003 entitled Changing Places, Norway's Tord Gustavsen came forth with a new and unique sound that has commanded worldwide attention, an extraordinary achievement given the rich and well-developed history of jazz piano that preceded him. He focuses on lyricism within a stripped-down approach to music, where playing is gentle, yet robust, expression of melody is simple, yet sophisticated, and beauty and emotional intensity are united. Tord Gustavsen has just released his sixth album for ECM Records, entitled Extended Circle [JP review]. The Tord Gustavsen Quartet features Tord Gustavsen on piano, Tore Brunborg on saxophone, Mats Eilertsen on double bass, and  Jarle Vespestad on drums. They will appear in a double bill with James Falzone’s Allos Musica at Constellation on Saturday, February 22nd. Working at the intersection of the traditional and the experimental, James Falzone’s Allos Musica re-imagines music from the Middle East, Andalusia, and Brittany alongside Falzone’s original compositions and arrangements. James Falzone’s Allos Musica features James Falzone on clarinet and woodwinds; Ronnie Malley on oud, voice, harmonium; Jeremiah McLane on accordion; and Tim Mulvenna on hand drums and percussion.
