Arctic Border was formed in 2018, and was until November 2020 known under the name of Salvatucci Trio. The band started as a project experimenting with new original compositions. While trying out different constellations at the Danish National Academy of Music (Syddansk Musikkonservatorium) the three members of the trio immediately found each other and a collective sound. The new name Arctic Border reflects the trio’s wish to explore the boundaries of the modern piano trio and sometimes go beyond. The compositions are a combination of simple Nordic jazz tradition, complex improvised passages, and moments of classical beauty and calm. Main inspirations include Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau, Shai Maestro and many others.
