Espen Eriksen Trio with Andy Sheppard

Saturday 26 November 2022

This event has passed.

Masters of melody Espen Eriksen Trio and British jazz star Andy Sheppard join us as part of their In The Mountains tour – “an album of classy, inventive jazz improvisation that’s pretty near perfect” (Jazzwise).

After 15 years, six albums and regular touring on four continents, Espen Eriksen Trio reputation is firmly established. The Norwegian trio’s music relies on highly melodic and lyrical instrumentals and is often credited for its unique voice. Award-winning saxophonist and composer Sheppard has made a significant impact on the international jazz scene. He’s worked with many notable figures including Gil Evans, Carla Bley, George Russell and Steve Swallow.

The Trio and Sheppard first teamed up in 2016 for two concerts in London and make a “truly remarkable” (All About Jazz) combination. Following their first record release in 2018, Perfectly Unhappy, the quartet have sold out venues across Europe and we can’t wait to welcome them to the Howard Assembly Room.

“No smoke and mirrors, just the graceful chemistry of superb musicians at the top of their game.”

Presented in association with JazzLeeds who promote live jazz in Leeds year-round.
