I'm relieved to discover that I am not alone in being disappointed in Restored, Returned, in which the vocals were a subtraction from the instrumental purity of the TG ensemble. The Well is truly a return to form, with the subtlety and intelligence that is a mark of a fine chamber ensemble, be it classical or jazz. The Well is a recording to savour -- and celebrate.

Tord Gustavsen is a favourite. I like my jazz on the less boisterous side these days and this is cerebral, stimulating and not too nerve jangling. Inventive, surprising and attention grabbing.

if you preferred the earlier tord gustavsen albums then you'll love this - with additional evocative sax - he seemed to have lost his way on his last outing but its back to form on this highly recommended album

Understatedly beautiful, Impressively edgy, if you’ve just had a fall out and are angry, or you find
Yourself in middle of the woods fearful this will pull you through.

Not his best but it's nice. I think that TGQ's best cds are ''Being there'' and ''Changes places'' ...by far

Highly recommended. Saw the concert and the CD certainly does not disappoint. Extremely talented musicians. Listen to their other CDs!

Live or on record, Tord Gustavsen's various ensembles are about as cool as it gets. There's no fuss, no obvious look-what-arpeggios-I-learned technical display; the 'Nordic Sound' is tinged in this case by chords with echoes of gospel, or South African a capella traditions. The players (Gustavsen, piano; Mats Ellertsen, bass, Jarle Vestespad, drums and Tore Brunborg, tenor sax) go about their business unhurriedly and often understatedly, with easy and skilful mutual communication.

The result is often sublime. But (or should that be 'and') the quiet intensity might be mistaken for quietness pure and simple, and call to mind that most awful gebrauchsmusik category, 'dinner jazz'. Music to talk over it ain't - so listen to it, and you'll be amply rewarded.

Superb. The quartet just gets better and better. It has been played and replayed countless times already. I'm already looking forward to the next one.
