22 May: Espen Eriksen Trio

Calstock Arts are excited to be included in this prestigious tour, which includes the far east (S Korea, China & Hong Kong), Norway, France and Calstock! Ok a  few others in the UK but none west of Bristol.

Espen Eriksen Trio is one of the most popular piano trios in Europe. With it’s highly melodic and lyrical instrumentals and “less is more” approach, the trio 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 two studio albums and multiple sold out tours in Europe, including two concerts at the London Jazz Festival broadcasted 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 have embraced the trio’s unique sound built upon a rich repertoire all signed pianist Eriksen. Captivating and lyrical, often melancholic and uplifting at the same time, these are all real tunes. 

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