"...a quite decisive unit which moved with taste and clarity along the more interesting corners of trioism..." (Henning Bolte - author/allaboutjazz.com)

"Grand trio debut..." (Roald Helgheim - author/Dagsavisen)

"his trio is now ready for an international career as well. And you could say better late than never..." (Mathias Kirsch - author/ginalovesjazz.com)

"After this album the good burghers of Bergen are going to have to share this band with the rest of Europe - it really does deserve to be heard on the European festival circuit ... tracks like "Homeland", "Moving" and "All of you" have the poise, elegance and originality of the very best piano trios in jazz today" (Stuart Nicholson - author/Jazzwise)

Eivind Austad Trio has a unique sound which combines the expressive lyricism of the european music with the power and swing from the african american music tradition...
