Espen Eriksen Trio - You Had Me At Goodbye

2010; 8 tracks

Espen Eriksen Trio is a fairly new Norwegian jazz group that focuses, primarily, on the gentle and rainy shades of the piano.

"Fantastic piano trio that combines highly melodic and lyrical instrumentals, with a hint of Scandinavian folk music. Focusing more on melodies and short solos! Very unique & minimalistic."

My friend showed me this, and it really is stunning. Jazzy melodies that seem to flow from another place, perfectly, like a pure liquid. There is an appealing folkiness to You Had Me At Goodbye that isn't too common in much of jazz music (which I truly know little about), but it proves a glistening attribute to this lovely music.
