Being There is an album by Norwegian jazz pianist and composer Tord Gustavsen recorded in December 2006 and released on the ECM label.[1][2]


The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars, stating:

For a recording that unveils itself so gracefully, there is true heft in its presentation. As hinted at on Tord Gustavsen's earlier ECM dates, Being There is the fruit of labor meticulously crafted and dutifully harvested. It is an album of secrets echoed, and questions that are fathomlessly deep; it invites the listener in cleanly, without seduction, and argues for full participation in its revelations.[1]
