The Japanese term Natsukashii describes how intense memories can
suddenly be triggered by something as trivial as an old shoe.

Norwegian pianist Helge Lien has dedicated his latest trio-CD to these
moments, when reality is replaced by reverie and a simple chord can
reveal innermost secrets.

Aptly, "Natsukashii was recorded in just three days. The sense of
spontaneity and subcutaneous tension this has awarded the sessions is
palpable on the album, which is pierced by dark metaphors as well as
a slow-simmering eroticism and channels the entire breadth of the
trio's influences - from classical to jazz and from folk to progressive

To Lien, music has always been about building narratives and the ten
stories contained here are among the most alluring and
atmospherically dense he's composed. These compositions never just
feed from nostalgia, but always explore the magic of the current
moment as well ? and, in doing so, take their audience on a veritable tripThe trio that has it all! After 'Hello Troll' comes: Natsukashii - Helge Lien Trio.
