Elastic Wave out 15th of July on ECM records

"Elastic Wave" out on ECM records 15th of July

Hi there.

It´s been a while. But hey, I´ve got great news for you. My trio Acoustic Unity went into the studio La Buissonne in France last summer to record our first album for ECM records. I´m really happy with this album, which I´ve called "Elastic Wave", and I can´t wait to show it to you. It will be released on the 15th of July, and you can already have a listen to one of the songs called "Boogie" here: 


ECM writes this:

Drummer Gard Nilssen’s ECM leader debut follows acclaimed recordings for the label with the Maciej Obara Quartet. Elastic Wave presents Nilssen’s powerful trio with fellow Norwegian André Roligheten on reeds and Swedish bassist Petter Eldh (recently heard with Kit Downes). The group’s dynamic interaction, dancing sense of pulse and boldly etched themes – all three players contribute compositions – make Acoustic Unity one of the most engaging bands on the circuit today, able to address fiery anthems and poignant ballads with equal panache and conviction.  Elastic Wave was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the South of France in June 2021.
