Water Stories was Bjornstad's ECM debut. Originally an enthusiast of classical style, Bjornstad's soft and often haunting technique overwhelms the mood of this album. The session features an incredible ECM veteran lineup with Terje Rypdal on guitar, Bjorn Kjellemyr (from Rypdal's Chasers band) on bass, and virtuoso Jon Christensen on drums. The record has an overall relaxing and polished feel, with abrupt and other-world sounds from Rypdal's electric strat--keeping the music from settling or being to pretty. The result is a lengthy piece with a consistent musical theme that, while easy and peaceful, never lets the listener lose interest. (the latter tracks feature Per Hillestad, an up-and-coming jazz percussionist with a Jack DeJohnette type rhythm).
