Spiking out of the vibrant improv-scene in Trondheim is the young and experimental TEIP TRIO with their eponymous debut album. In spite of their young age they have been around as a trio for years and years, which is clearly audible on this ambitious collection of takes.

Ingebrigt Håker Flaten and Rolf-Erik Nystrøm can be described as institutions of contemporary jazz and improv. Both have been around for decades, giving us musical innovation and extreme sports-like art experiences. Their new release El Sistema was recorded almost 20 years ago, and yet it is topical and relevant even today.
