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 them 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.
