We up the ante for our new season with this special gig by Espen Eriksen Trio – one of the most popular piano trios in Europe.

With its highly melodic and lyrical instrumentals and “less is more” approach, the trio is often credited by the international press for its unique voice within today’s jazz scene. To quote the BBC in its review of the trio’s second album What Took You So Long: “A wonderfully plaintive jazz record, abandoned to the lost art of melodic minimalism, stripped back and beautifully near bare. No smoke and mirrors, just the graceful chemistry of superb musicians at the top of their game.”

Espen Eriksen Trio also has an ongoing collaboration with the British saxophone star Andy Sheppard, resulting in two studio albums and multiple sold-out tours in Europe, including two concerts at the London Jazz Festival broadcast by BBC Radio.

After 17 years, seven critically acclaimed records and worldwide touring, the trio is tighter than ever and has reached an almost telepathic level of interplay. And a global audience certainly has embraced the trio’s unique sound, built upon a rich repertoire largely from the pen of pianist Eriksen. Captivating and lyrical, often melancholic and uplifting at the same time, these are all proper, hummable tunes.

So, in Jazzwise’s words, get ready for “one of the most unified, individual and recognizable group sounds in European jazz”!
