Helge Lien Trio

Having built up loyal audiences, perhaps most notably in Germany and Japan, the Helge Lien Trio bring with them their finely poised tunes that balance impressive virtuosity with inherent accessibility, and introspective lyricism with buoyant expressionism to their concerts around the world.

Helge Lien, has developed his very own unmistakable style of trio playing. With instinctive sureness, he and his musicians have developed their own take on chamber jazz that stands out through its harmonically complex tone colors. Building on Bill Evans’ lyrical power and the exhilaratingly melancholic playing of Esbjörn Svensson, Lien, in constant dialogue with Frode Berg (bass) & Per Oddvar Johansen (drums), creates distinct moods in recorded and live settings alike.

Doubtlessly, pianist Helge Lien, who is very skilled at playing to the gallery with his modal piano art, is one of the most exciting young talents in Scandinavia. Playing their way into the hearts of a steadily growing circle of listeners with classic-impressionistic patterns and rhythmical-melodic jazz, this trio’s resourcefulness seems to truly know no bounds.
