About The Event

The Kjetil Mulelid Trio consists of some of Norway's most interesting jazz musicians that are involved in projects like "Hegge" (Norwegian Grammy Award winner 2017), "Megalodon Collective" (Norwegian Grammy Award nomination 2016, and winner of JazzIntro 2016), "Wako" and the "Trondheim Jazz Orchestra". They play modern acoustic jazz, a mixture of compositions written by Mulelid and pure collective improvisations.

"The music is simple, beautiful and well composed tunes which goes in and out of expressive improvisations" (Olav Opsvik, NO).

"The compositions reflects Mulelid's rich and melodic play" (Eyal Hareuveni, IS).

The trio have since 2016 toured three times in West-Europe and played concerts on some of Norway's biggest jazz scenes, recorded some great live videos and released their debut album "Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House" which got honoured world-wide by critics.
