Join Sheffield Jazz for an evening with Norwegian masters of melody Espen Eriksen Trio and multi-award-winning British saxophonist Andy Sheppard.
Espen Eriksen Trio is a tight unit with a dazzling use of dynamics, ranging from melancholic moods to hypnotic grooves and an almost telepathic level of interplay. With a career spanning over four decades, working with the likes of George Russell, Gil Evans and Carla Bley, Andy Sheppard is one of Europe’s leading saxophonists and composers. This is a partnership that has resulted in international tours and two acclaimed albums.
"The symbiosis between the saxophonist and the trio is truly remarkable" – All About Jazz.
