Description

On 'Sails Set' bassist/composer Mats Eilertsen presents the same trio line-up as featured on his critically acclaimed album 'Elegy': Mats on double bass, with pianist Harmen Fraanje (Michael Moore) and drummer Thomas Strønen (Food, Meadow). Eilertsen - a member of the Tord Gustavsen group - is one of the most powerful and distinctive bass players on the Nordic jazz scene and has recorded for labels such as ECM, Jazzaway and Rune Grammofon.

'Sails Set' offers exclusively improvised material, relatively short and often melodic pieces in solo, duo or trio format. "Our goal has been to create improvised tunes, sounds and situations that could equally well have been composed and produced," says Eilertsen. The members of the trio communicate seamlessly and effortlessly, and all three possess a richly varied palette of sounds and make a creative contribution to the ensemble, both as soloists and accompanists. 'Sails Set' is Mats Eilertsen's fourth release on Hubro and was recorded, mixed and mastered at Rainbow Studio, Oslo by Jan Erik Kongshaug.

Personnel: Mats Eilertsen (double bass), Harmen Fraanje (piano, voice), Thomas Strønen (drums)
