Since 2007 the Norwegian jazz piano trio of Espen Eriksen (piano), Lars Tormod Jenset (double bass) and Andreas Bye (drums) have released three albums of lyrical and beautifully paced music, evolving their style through tours and festivals.

Eriksen, Espen Trio
Never Ending January

Eriksen, Espen Trio: Never Ending January (Rune Grammofon)

Label: Rune Grammofon    
Released in: Norway    

"The Espen Eriksen Trio, after worldwide tours that further refined their signature sound, present Never Ending January, their third album. Beautifully recorded and mixed at Propeller Studio in Oslo, the album focuses on typically Scandinavian elements such as folk music, melancholia, and the deep woods. In that respect it's fair to say that they belong to the same tradition as Tord Gustavsen and the late Esbjorn Svensson, even Jan Johansson in some respects, but without really sounding like any of them. But it's also fair to say that the trio's less-is-more approach is in stark contrast to many contemporary piano trios, with shorter tunes and a strong focus on melodic content. Pianist Espen Eriksen's musical background is varied, ranging from pop music to jazz and the church organ."-Rune Grammofon

Also available on vinyl LP.
