Cecilie Grundt Quintet & Aila trio

Cecilie Grundt Quintet

Cecilie formed her first band as a leader, Cecilie Grundt Quintet, in 2016 which features Øyvind Mathisen on trumpet, Håvard Aufles on piano, Morten Stai on bass and Åsmund Smidt on drums. The band is characterized by communicative interplay through playfulness and curiosity, expressing a contemporary jazz language influenced by the jazz tradition and beyond. The musicians are always given great freedom to flavour the music in their own way. Cecilie Grundt Quintet is still developing, exploring new melodies and structures, and playing with different time signatures.

Øyvind Mathisen – trumpet
Håvard Aufles – keys
Morten Stai – bass
Håkon Mjåset Johansen – drums


Aila trio

Together they create a state of calmness and melancholia. Aila trio explores the border between free-improvisation and composed music with no fear of crossing genrers. The music-material is centered around distinct melodies that form a frame-work for three strong improvisers who all know what they want and how they´re gonna get it. With a common approach to free-jazz music, they draw the listener into their own musical universe. Let yourself be carried away!


Georgia Wartel Collins – upright-bass and composition
Karl Hjalmar Nyberg – saxophone, clarinette
Andreas Winther – drums
