Henry C. Hollwedel (1914)

Tord Gustavsen Quartet

Tord Gustavsen, piano; Jarle Vespestad, drums; Mats Eilertsen, double bass; Tore Brunborg, saxophones

Escape from everyday cares with the mellow and entrancing jazz of the Tord Gustavsen Quartet, whose melodies are “rich and full” and whose “slow-motion groove” is “deep” (London Evening Standard). Tord Gustavsen is one of the leading jazz pianists today, an artist who “has refined his zen-like art to near perfection” (Jazz Journal), infused with a Nordic-cool. Relish this hip elegance among the calm architectural proportions, suffused lighting, and inviting ambiance of the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club. “Gustavsen’s discreet gospel roots and his musical meticulousness bring audiences to awed silence” (Guardian).

This concert is made possible in part by a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
