Andy Sheppard and Espen Erikeson Trio @Howard Assembly Room Thursday 26 November


In a reprise of their superb performance at the 2019 JazzLeeds Festival, multi-award-winning British saxophonist Andy Sheppard returns to Leeds with Norwegian masters of melody Espen Eriksen Trio. Espen’s 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 truly one of Europe’s leading saxophonists and composers. Expect absorbing and uplifting music from superb musicians at the top of their game. “The symbiosis between the saxophonist and the trio is truly remarkable” – All About Jazz
