Alongside Audun Ellingsen on bass and drummer Hermund Nygard, Gisle has produced a well constructed record of creative improvisation and beauty. The album is proof that the 38-year-old Norwegian genius is once again able to surprise lovers of contemporary European jazz.

The Ozella label have historically released some great jazz albums and Gisle Torvik's 'Tranquil Fjord' is no exception. Balanced between peaceful tranquillity and the bubbling enthusiasm of the musicians, this album flows with Nordic electricity from start to finish.  

'Making music comes natural to me without any consideration if I am crossing musical genre boundaries.' Gisle Torvik 

'Various climates scrolls during the 42-minute first-ever LP from the Norwegian guitarist. Here is both the place for sleepy, lazy impressions such as title track, the truly impressive "bløming", and a beautiful acoustic ballad "stille song" which trigger associations to the famous "Cavatina" John Williams - "blå skugge", as well as other compositions also injects other instrumentalism. An example of the latter is also "kryssande" decorated with excellent contrabass line of Ellingsen,and the rich and full-blooded drums of Hermund Nygård. Tranquil Fjord is also an exciting slide show of an unbridled virtuosity Torvik, combined with efficient ability to use to embrace modern technology. However, it is worth to highlight that musician uses them always in moderation and only when the electronics seems to be fully justified. The disc is full of beautiful melodies, invented by trio in an amazing focal convention. Such even as charming and graceful acoustic miniature "bloming' preceded by 2-minute "før bloming", "for one contributor's interpretation is beautiful 5 minutes puck: "ARV".' Longplay

'I know a lot of Jazz players, but Gisle Torvik is one of the most beautifully expressive guitarists I have ever heard! Every note he plays goes right into my soul!' Roger Sadowski
