The trio started as project band to explore jazz and improvisation, yet soon they were ready with a debut album full of creative compositions, strong interplay and a unique band sound.
Their first album 'Associated with Water' (2017) is an album made with a highly compositional approach that aims to float seemingly from jazz to classical to folk. It contains emotional impressionistic passages followed by groovy balkan bass-lines, modern jazz themes and Chopin-like rubato “islands”.
The trio has a collective vision, combining three individual artists and composers.
"Frederik Bülow on the drums is the anchor of the trio with the most energetic and interactive passages to the most intense silences. He is busy on the nordic jazz scene because of his in depth understanding of a wide range of music."
To find a new jazz direction; that is the main focus for this trio. To develop new and small “islands” of musical invention and interaction that can enhance our nordic jazz sound. Also, to make poetic and energetic improvisational choices that suit the given composition in a non pretentious way.
Associated with Water was recorded and mixed by Jacob Worm in Finlands studiet, Aarhus, Denmark January/February 2017
