ESPEN ERIKSEN TRIO

Really looking forward to the Soundhouse debut of this incredible jazz trio from Norway …

“A captivating sense of lyricism, something of a lost art in these days of pattern running” – Jazzwise

After 15 years, six albums and regular touring around the world, Espen Eriksen Trio is one of the most popular piano trios in Europe – not at least in UK. Their latest release, the live album In The Mountains, was selected as Editor’s Choice by Jazzwise describing it as “pretty near perfect”.

The trio’s music relies on highly melodic and lyrical instrumentals and a “less is more” approach and is often credited for its unique voice within today’s jazz scene by the international press. To quote BBC in their review of the trio’s second album “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 the album Perfectly Unhappy in 2018 and multiple sold-out tours in Europe, including two concerts at the London Jazz Festival broadcasted by BBC Radio. Sheppard is also featured on three tracks on this year’s live album In The Mountains.

After extensive touring worldwide, Espen Eriksen Trio comes through as a tight unit with a dazzling use of dynamics, ranging from melancholic moods to hypnotic grooves.
