SIMON TOLDAM TRIO

“There are echoes of Monk and Bill Evans, as well as Bobo Stenson and perhaps Brad Mehldau, in the trio’s loose, collaborative sound, but comparisons don’t do justice to the uniqueness of this gloriouly lo-fi recording. It’s all about the energy in the room and the intense focus of a talented young trio lost in music.”
Cormac Larkin, 25/5-2012 - The Irish Times (IRL)

In late 2010, after many years of having focused on music that moved in many other directions Toldam, much to his surprise, realized that the new compositions that flowed from the keyboard and onto the paper were compositions that called for, yes even demanded, interpretation by a trio in order to reach their full potential.

It has become the essence of Toldam. The essence that lies in music that embraces and represents the main parts of his musical life and development – which is a distillate of his experiences as a nine year old with his very first trio to his current collaboration with kindred spirits Nils Davidsen and Knut Finsrud. He has the piano sing with music, bubbling or silently breathed.

For Toldam the music also expresses a tribute to the rich piano tradition of jazz – from the past and to the modern age. This is the classic trio order in jazz – “Art of the Trio” according to Toldam – his new compositions being played in an inspiring setup. From swing to neo-avantgarde. Simon Toldam’s newly formed trio plays music that expresses the full 360 degrees of his musical universe.

Their debut album "Sunshine Sunshine or Green as Grass" was nominated for best album & best composer at Danish Music Award Jazz 2012.

First album in the duo logy "KIG OP" was released september 2014. To fullfill the duo logy, KIG OP 15 will be released late April 2015.
