About the Album

For the follow up to his epic 2006 release, Trinity, Chicago guitarist John Moulder presents a collaboration with the critically acclaimed Norwegian jazz musicians - saxophonist Bendik Hofseth, and bassist Arild Andersen, the French Academie du Jazz's "2009 European Jazz Musician of the Year." Along with his longtime bandmates Paul Wertico on drums and Brian Peters on electric bass and programming, Moulder melds both musical cultures into a seamless sonic landscape. Moulder's suite "Cold Sea Triptych" is exceptional, and highlights the profound musical connection that the quintet displays throughout the session.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
