Kjetil Mulelid Trio - Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House [Rune Grammofon Promo]

Incoming from Norway only recently despite being released on the classic Rune Grammofon label in late October, 2k17 is "Not Nearly Enough To Buy A House", the latest album outing by the Kjetil Muletid Trio which bases its work around and on the compositions of the groups leader, piano player Kjetil Andre Mulelid. Opening things with the aptly named "Entrance" the group leads us into a world of deep, fascinating, late rainy afternoon Jazz for lovers, weighing in tender, yet complex and beautiful workouts like the seven minutes spanning "Fly, Fly" which is suitable for both smoky, quality bar environments as well as highly advanced late night dancefloors with a sense for dramatic arrangements or the sweet Jazz Noir of "You Stood There In Silence, Having No Words" which contains a whole cinematographic black and white scene in its title alone that's perfectly depicted by its musical tone before "C & R" drifts off into tense piano minimalisms for less than two minutes and continues on this path with the stripped down experimentalism of "Time / Breath" which brings on one of the most emotional piano motifs we've come across in a while. If Deep Jazz and / or Jazz Noir is your thing, this album will be up your alley for sure.
