Still only 29 years old, Kjetil Mulelid comes across as an exceptionally mature pianist and composer. His trio´s debut from 2017 received wide international acclaim, with writers most typically mentioning Keith Jarrett and Bill Evans. All About Jazz noted their conversational style and sometimes gospel feel, Textura made a point out of their melodic sense and folk-like character while The Wire noted the grooves, rich harmonies, and lyrical melodies and concluded about "just how magical this album is". "What You Thought Was Home" continues in this tradition, with eight new beguiling Mulelid compositions expertly balancing energetic, often rhythmically complex and harmonically rich music with beautiful and evocative melodies. It´s not all about Mulelid though, bassist Hegge and drummer Winther effortlessly conjure additional layers, tones, and textures, incorporating a sense of calm; an unhurried yet constantly unfolding sound world which can be said to be distinctively Scandinavian, most typically heard in Hegge´s sole composition "Bruremarsj (Wedding March)" Kjetil A.
