This trio had it’s debut concert at the Blow Up festival in Oslo, Norway; summer 2011. Since then they have released several records, toured all over the world, including Norway, North and South America, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. They are continuously planning new tours, recordings and seeking untouched territories.

Gjerstad and Nilssen-Love’s collaboration goes back to 1992 when Frode formed Circulasione Totale Orchestra in their hometown, together with a rock band plus Paal as a second drummer. Since then, they have worked together in various settings as duo, trios and quartets. CD/LP releases include a handful of 25 titles with various collaborations.

Since the formation of this particular trio, there are a total of 7 CDs released, both live concerts and studio recordings. Latest release is “Steam in the Casa”, a live recording from Montreal, November 2015, released on PNL records.

The trio’s music is free improvised and has its roots in the free-jazz tradition. With a high level of energy but with strong dynamics and rapid contrasts, the trio has developed a sound of its own and has its strength from many years of experience as a working group.

The trio is here joined by New York trombonist Steve Swell.

Swell and Gjerstad have collaborated in various ad hoc groups in New York over the years and it was time to get on the road together and explore music and social life for real! Steve really opened up the music and took the band to new territories. The palate of sounds and playing broadened and brought out new qualities of each member. No doubt is this a group that benefits from live playing and intensively touring and there’s already talk of doing more roadwork together as a quartet.
