Trio 65 ½ was the trio that won all the jazz-competitions in the mid 60’s and were “talk of the town”.
The three incredibly talented musicians listened to their idol, the pianist Bill Evans’ LP Trio 64 and halfway through 1965 Ole Streenberg came up with the name: Trio 65 ½.
It’s with great joy that Storyville Records present Trio 65 ½’s music from 1966 and 1967. This album is proof that Danish avantgardejazz from the 1960’s was at an international level, and it deserves to be listened to – both due to its historical value, but also its significant and extraordinary sound.
"This music is 50 years old, but it's ageless and has so much to offer also in 2017. Probably also in 2067."
