Doors open 19:00

Spellemann prize-nominated trio Gard Nilssen Acoustic Unity are one of the most dynamic small groups on the current Norwegian jazz scene. Groove, energy and tight interplay are the keywords, with Nilssen’s energetic freestyle drumming at the centre. The trio’s music recalls the classic free bop of the 1960s and 70s, but at the same time sounds fresh and newly invented.  
The group’s latest LP, Elastic Wave, was released in 2022 on ECM Records.
