'Superb musicians on top of their game'
- Spencer Grady, BBC Music
Espen Eriksen Trio was formed in 2007 and has released six critically acclaimed records on the Norwegian label Rune Grammofon. The trio’s unique and acclaimed sound is founded upon highly melodic and lyrical instrumentals, described by the Independent as 'delicate, ambiently inclined'.
The trio has an ongoing collaboration with British saxophonist Andy Sheppard, resulting in the 2018 album Perfectly Unhappy and multiple sold out tours in Europe, including two concerts at the London Jazz Festival broadcast by BBC Radio. Espen Eriksen Trio’s latest studio album, 'End Of Summer', was recorded during lockdown and is a collection of captivating and lyrical songs, often melancholic and uplifting at the same time described by Jazz Journal as 'impeccably performed, full of crisp, beguiling melodies and improvisations that are thoughtful without neglecting feeling'.
'Captivating sense of lyricism, something of a lost art'
This concert is presented in association with Cambridge Modern Jazz
