Explorers of the Norwegian jazz habitat:New creations from the piano trio with the magic sound.

This album is a rare moment to cherish and enjoy every second of. Awarded Norwegian pianist Helge Lien and his band developed their very own, distinctively nordic, jazz trio sound, brought to perfection on their latest, highly acclaimed release "Natsukashii". The ten new compositions are exploring new ways for the reflexive and experimental, as well as the playful, groove orientated side of the trio's music. After 13 years, Per Oddar Johansen takes over from Knut Aalefjær on drums, bringing new ideas and power to the band. It's the world class songwriting and musicianship , as well as the stand-out production that make "Badgers and other Beings" an unmissable experience for both jazz fans and audiophiles.

Press Quotes

(4 stars) Lien seems to be able to channel emotion, retaining a sense of joy while also introducing enough shade and balancing melancholia to stop the album becoming too narrowly targeted...Lien's pianism and musical personality as an improviser, yet again, remains world class.

Marlbank, (Stephen Graham), March 20, 2014
