Vestbo Trio could be the band that draws you back to instrumental music again (it’s about time!). Inspired by the sound and timbre of jazz music, and always aiming to connect with the listener like a great singer
would, Vestbo Trio’s music has a charm that will delight you: Steeped in the blues with a knack for melody and groove, this is music that could feature a singer, but doesn’t. And that’s precisely the point. Vestbo Trio captures the subtlety and beauty of instrumental music. Using electric guitar, upright bass and drums, we see instrumental music as a way to tell a story, much in the same way as a singer/songwriter would. Steeped in the blues, adding twang, noir and jazz, we play our hearts out to open yours!
Mudslide starts out soft and slow, evoking a very special atmosphere, then states the melody on top of a strong groove and builds from there to close with a stinging guitar solo. The music is pure quality listening and a great track where you can’t resist cranking up the volume. Lean back and let Vestbo Trio take you away!
While you were gone is recorded under the “Nordic Dynamic” initiative (read more at www.nordicdynamic.net) and we are thrilled to salute Vestbo Trio for their efforts in getting the best recording quality possible.
