Masters of melody from Norway team up with British jazz star for a brand new collaboration.

When Espen Eriksen Trio embarked on their first full scale UK tour in May 2016, saxophonist Andy Sheppard joined the Trio for two concerts in London. From the first notes it was clear that this was a perfect match. The interplay was seamless and it was as if the melodies of Epsen Eriksen were specially written for Andy Sheppard. A new collaboration was born and since then Espen Eriksen Trio and Andy Sheppard have toured together in Norway and South Korea.

In October 2017 they recorded their first album together. The record will be released on the Norwegian label Rune Gramafon in May 2018, featuring eight new songs by Eriksen, this time written especially for the project.

Through touring and recording the trio and Sheppard have together created a new common idiom, which will speak to followers of Eriksen's and Sheppard's work alike. Their fresh approach to the music will both please and surprise the listener, as it weaves it's path through enchanting melodies and lyrical improvisation, sitting perfectly with Eriksen's and Sheppard's long lasting tradition.

This new collaboration between Espen Eriksen Trio and Andy Sheppard will delight fans and without doubt will attract many new ones.
