Dimitrios Vassilakis & Espen Berg Trio

On the occasion of the release of the fourth album "Fjære" and the upcoming release of the new collaboration with Dimitrios Vassilakis, Espen Berg's trio comes from Norway to the Half Note, as part of their European tour.

Espen's melodic and rhythmically complex music serves as the basis for the trio's dynamic, and idiosyncratic interaction with Dimitris Vassilakis' spontaneous saxophone prose.

Dimitris Vassilakis an internationally acclaimed saxophonist, vocalist and composer with award-winning recordings from the BBC on Candid Records, presentations at Birdland, Dizzy's Club - Jazz at the Lincoln Center, Yale, Smithsonian, United Nations, Ronnie Scott's - London Jazz Festival, has been collaborating with the trio since 2019 and their new recording "Daedalus Project - Persephone" will be released in 2024 on Candid Records.

Espen Berg is an international award-winning pianist. In 2016 he received Norway's highest music award, "JazZtipendiate", at the Molde Jazz Festival. He is a member of the Norwegian Jazz Startup Program 2018 and Espen Berg Trio was appointed as an official ambassador of NTNU at the Trondheim Jazz Festival in 2016.
