After successful studio and live albums with guitarist Reine Fiske as a co-billed guest and touring with über guitarist Terje Rypdal, Norway's most unique instrumental jazz-rock outfit return to their original configuration as a trio. Keyboardist Ståle Storløkken, bassist Nikolai Hængsle, and drummer Torstein Lofthus originally got together to explore music that inspired them – from the cue-driven compositional vamp of Miles Davis' Bitches Brew and Weather Report's Mysterious Traveler and Sweetnighter recordings to the overdriven fusion of Tony Williams' Lifetime and Canterbury-style prog rock. Along the way, they discovered a sound of their own that exists between and outside those reference points.
