In 2004 I replaced Steinar Nickelsen on organ in this modern mainstream jazz trio with Bjørn Vidar Solli on guitar and since 2005 with Håkon Mjåset Johansen on drums replacing Truls Rønning, who played with the original trio in 2002 when it was awarded “young jazz musicians of the year” in Norway.
During the years this trio has toured extensively both in Norway as well as performances abroad in such different countries as Nepal, India, China, Viet Nam, USA, Ireland, France, Belgium and Sweden. Solid has currently released the CDs “Solid!” (Jazzaway 2005), “Happy Accidents” (aim 2007) and “Visitor” featuring Seamus Blake (parallell 2011). In addition to playing on the last record, New York based Canadian saxophonist Seamus Blake also went on tour with Solid in 2009 and 2011. In 2004 Solid also did tour with Will Vinson, another New York based but English saxophonist.
