The music of Esa Pietilä Trio is Scandinavic, free-oriented and communicative, composed by bass player Uffe Krokfors and saxophonist Pietilä. The trio also does a lot of collective improvisation based on the ongoing moment.

The debut cd of the trio was released on April 4, 2003. The cd has aspects of every side of communication between the members, ranging from straightforward energetic free playing to soundscapes, not forgetting the use of different pulses, colors and duo combinations within the group.
