Het Kjetil Mulelid Trio is een boeiend nieuw Noors jazz piano trio dat moderne akoestische jazz speelt. Hun muziek is een mengeling van composities van Mulelid en pure collectieve improvisaties.
De muziek is zowel energiek als intiem met mooie melodieën en complexe ritmes, geïnspireerd door Noordse jazz groepen. De drie bandleden afzonderlijk hebben een aantal goed ontvangen albums uitgebracht en nemen deel aan festivals en diverse projecten zoals het Megalodon Collective (Norwegian grammy awards nominatie in 2016), Round Trip en Wako.
