Eple Trio

Andreas Ulvo - piano
Sigurd Hole - bass
Jonas Howden Sjøvaag - drums, keys, electronics

NORCD is continuing its efforts to promote young performers within the ever-expanding genre called jazz. We are proud to be able to present this piano trio with a unique sound. The members of the Eple trio have been working together for many years, and have thus developed an unusual level of empathy in their interplay. These three musicians are operating at the interface between jazz, chamber music and folk music. The tradition established by Swedish musician Jan Johansson has, perhaps, been the primary inspiration for their music.

”Another example of how Norwegian artists are stretching the boundaries of the traditional piano trio past its breaking point into completely new territory, The Widening Sphere of Influence is an appropriate title for Eple Trio's imaginative musical expansionism. Whether it's the delicately atmospheric, image-inducing “Buoy” or more majestic “River Song,” which bookend the disc with related motifs, Eple Trio's blend of serenity and occasional bursts of jagged intensity make for a unique and consistently compelling listen.” - John Kelman, All about jazz
