Adam Pultz Melbye

I was born in 1981 and grew up in the country-side near the old and beautiful town of Ribe which has a quiteactive cultural life that is unfortunately constantly challenged by the menace of local right-wing and ignorant politicians with little understanding of the mechanisms of creativity.

My father, playing the organ in the cathedral of Ribe and performing concerts in both Europe and the States and, having little luck in making musicians of his first five children, decided that I, at the age of seven, should learn to play the piano. After almost two years of intense struggle he wisely abandoned the idea and instead presented me with a turtle that later escaped into the surrounding woods and vanished forever.

”The Mighy Mouse has a deliciously crooked and edgy sound and approach to the music that makes this cd a interesting listening experience.They are working their way through the with a joy of playing and a surplus so that you cannot but be impressed.” ”The cd which is at the moment on constant rotation in my player is some of the coolest innovative piano trio jazz I have heard for a long time.” ”The Mighty Mouse has the abilities and the talent to become something big and deserves an international breakthrough.” Review of ”The Mighty Mouse” cd at Jazznet (www.home1.stofanet.dk/jazznet/barefoot.html) by Henrik Kaldahl.

“The music to which you are presented as a listener is incredibly thorough and is being played with a convincing zest, spark and joy of playing that leave you sitting completely breathless with sweat on your brow.” ”The communication between these three musicians is nothing less than one-of-a-kind and the best way to describe it is with the word ”telepathic”, these three musicians only know one way and that is forward.” Review of Trio Creepy's “Adventurous Instrumental Music” at Jazznet (www.home1.stofanet.dk/jazznet/barefoot.html) by Henrik Kaldahl.
