Despite my strong relationship to classical music, as a performer I never had the patience to sit down to learn to read music properly. Reading music felt too much like a detour from my goal of making music. The road to improvised music and jazz was a more immediate and natural way for me to go. However when immersing myself in the standard jazz repertoire, I eventually came to the conclusion that even jazz isn’t necessarily free. There are a lot of written and unwritten rules you have to follow.

As a pianist, Andreas Ulvo is already well known on the norwegian and european jazz scene. He has toured all around the world with bands and artists like Mathias Eick Quintet, Frøy Aagre, Eple Trio and Karl Seglem Acoustic Quartet. He is inspired by everything from jazz, classical music, folk music to pop music, and all this music is melted together in his latest release "Softspeaker". Even though Ulvo's music is influenced by a wide range of genres, the final result sounds natural and seamless.

I take photos of bands and artists, of people I know, and of people I don't know. And some nature that I like

22/05 | 2013

Sometimes it feels natural to take a step back. After doing several recordings in studios with large grand pianos I felt the time was right to go back to the place it all started, to the house where I grew up, to the old Grotrian-Steinweg piano on which I learned to play. Maybe that is why the music on this record is simpler, more poetic than much of my earlier work. This record was made during two days in May, and if you listen closely you may hear the birds sing and the sound of rain against the window
