Norwegian trombonist Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø has shared stages with a wide range of influential improvisers. One of his returning projects has been the trio with Swedish drummer Raymond Strid and Swiss double bassist Nina de Heney. Oslo Wien was recorded during their 2014 European tour, and the double album presents a trio balancing on the very verge between individualism and group mentality. The trio was first put together for Henrik's exam concert at the Academy of Music in Gothenburg, May 2011. One of the strongest attributes of the trio is their common understanding of the use of tension and release. The music moves forward constantly, but is never forced. They can sojourn in a sort of zero-state for a long time in which the music only varies with small nuances, before they suddenly break out in small and big musical explosions when one of the musicians provides a hint toward this. Just as they can follow each other with a wink, they sometimes also choose to withstand an impulse or let an energy flow remain unredeemed to create a different tension. Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø: trombone; Raymond Strid: drums; Nina de Heney: double bass.
