Seamlessly combining elements of jazz, experimental, ambient and rock, the scintillating power trio of expatriate Brit organist Roy Powell, Norwegian guitarist Jacob Young and Norwegian drummer Jarle Vespestad extends the organ trio tradition established by Jimmy Smith and taken to realms beyond on such groundbreaking recordings as Tony Williams Lifetime’s Emergency! (with Larry Young and John McLaughlin) and John Abercrombie’s Timeless (with Jan Hammer and Jack DeJohnette).

With each successive outing – first 2011’s Anthem (self-released) followed by their raucous RareNoise debut, 2013’s InterStatic — this potent Norway-based trio has upped the ante on intensity and audaciousness while arriving at a nexus where rock organically meets jazz. Now the powerhouse unit has reached a new level with 2014’s superb Arise.
