The Mighty Mouse is a modern Nordic piano trio. The band has existed since 2005 and is led by the Danish pianist, Morten Pedersen.
The music has a calm and clear vibe, with a unique Nordic sound. There is an open and high spirited approach to the music. Clear melodies and open improvisations, melting together in an organic and natural way. Some of the tracks are melodic statements without any improvisation. Like songs without words.
The influences are many, but legendary trios with Bobo Stenson and Paul Bley, have had their influence on the approach to the music and sound of The Mighty Mouse.
Throughout the years, the band has had a wide range of successful tours all around Germany, Denmark, Poland and Sweden and released two acclaimed records on Barefoot Records.
