In Chinese Jü means ’flow’, but the word is also used for a person who has already found the right way of living. Though keeping is almost as hard as finding, the members of the band have enough experience, courage and power of creation to face new challenges and go with the flow.
Jü is an epxerimental jazz trio from Budapest. The band, formed in Spring 2012 by now became one of the most exciting jazz acts on the Hungarian music scene. The music act is a dynamic powerjazz full of psychedelic tunes and improvisation from Budapest's best underground musicians which includes Andras Halmos (Kampec Dolores) on drums, Erno Hock (Grencso Kollektiva, Qualitions) on bass guitar and Adam Meszaros (Erik Sumo Band) on guitars. Melding experimental jazz, psychedelic rock and free improvisation, the band performs bot on jazz festivals and big rock venues.
As a part of different music collectives and as solo performers, the members of Jü has worked with such internationally acclaimed musicians as John Zorn, Charles Gayle, Chris Potter, Eugene Chadbourne, William Parker, Hamid Drake and Mikolaj Trzaska.
Kjetil Traavik Møster was born June 17, 1976 in Bergen.
The alto-saxophone was a subject of study at music high-school Langhaugen, with mainly classical teachers. Switched to tenor at the age of 18, and took a few lessons with Karl Seglem.
Studied with saxophonist John Pål Inderberg, digging into the different jazz-traditions of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.
Simultaneously more and more involved in Oslo rock band King Midas, learning from their creative use of studio equipment and unorthodox view upon the role of the saxophone.
Experimenting with the crossing point between jazz, improv and rock became most important issue through conservatory.
Moved to Oslo summer 2002, getting into the city’s music scene, but still holding on to the most important bands of the Trondheim days, such as The Core, Möster, Gibrish and BRAT.
The three years spent in Oslo has so far resulted in the bands Zanussi Five, Trinity, MZN3, Action Jazz, Blow Job (Fe-Mail featuring Møster), Hakj, Ultralyd and Crimetime Orchestra, and has contained cooperation with Håvard Wiik, Paal Nilssen-Love, Jon Christensen, Mats Eilertsen, Fredrik Ljungkvist, Per ”Texas” Johansson, Håkon Kornstad, Raymond Strid, Mike Pride, Michael Zerang, Josh Berman, Nate Wooley, Ivar Grydeland, Bjørnar Andresen, Bjørnar Habbestad, Ketil Gutvik, etcetctcetc
In the 2005, Møster also started working out a solo saxophone repertoir, doing concerts in Bergen (march), Kongsberg Jazzfestival (july) and Trondheim (sept/oct).
