Last year I became a big fan of Norwegian piano trio Moskus
on the strength of its second album, Mestertyven
, released in 2014. When I wrote about the record in August 2015, I noted that the group had just finished making a new album and that I couldn't wait to hear it. It came out early this year, but I guess I've been distracted—I only got around to playing it this week, and now I regret the months I could've been listening to it and wasn't. On Ulv Ulv
(Hubro) Moskus carries on the improvisatory approach it adopted for Mestertyven
, ditching compositions for pure spontaneity.
