Great 4/5 review of Moskus: Mestertyven in The Guardian
There is a great 4/5 review of Moskus´second album Mestertyven in The Guardian today.
“Norwegian piano trio Moskus sounded promising on their calculated, richly detailed debut for Hubro (Salmesykkel, in 2012), but its contrastingly informal successor is a better session”, critic John Fordham writes in his review. “Recorded unrehearsed in a wooden church, with pianist Anja Lauvdal on an upright, this absorbing set opens with a lurchingly jazzy eccentricity that recalls Monk or Paul Bley, develops in slow ostinatos and languidly weaving motifs (Tandem), grippingly remorseless trills (Rulings and Lille Trille) or slithery improv (Glasblasen), and at times breaks out into unapologetic contemporary jazz”
