2012 release from the Norwegian pianist and his quartet. The Well is a very unified and coherent album, although the songs were written individually and of pieces written as a commission for the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in England 2011 and pieces for the Oslo International Church Music Festival 2011. Tord had originally thought that they would do maybe a bit more of the internal duo or trio playing inside the quartet, but it happened that the overall quartet energy was so good that they just kept playing. Now apart from two trio tunes the rest of the album is in full quartet.

I am a fan of good trios,(piano, bass, drum is my favorite. Oscar Peterson Trio, Bill Evans Trio and Wynton Kelly are the first that come to mind. I am also a person that follows, "if it ain't broke don't mess with", and that sometimes we have to polish it up a bit, this is all of that and more. Pardon the pun, but the "The Well",takes us a little deeper into the creativity of Gustavsen as a composer, adding the sax seems to me now as evolutionary.
In my opinion this album shows both the love affair the Nordic people have for the American Jazz music and their growth as Jazz Artists and Composers.
I just love putting the big cans on and listening, a great stride for these artists, ECM, and jazz heads like me.
