Helge Lien Trio - one of the most important Scandinavian groups, founded in 1999 by the Norwegian pianist Helge Lien.
Helge Lien has shown himself to be a musician who is not afraid to explore the borders between different musical genres, but whose basic sound as a jazz pianist is always a distinctive feature. He also has developed his very own unmistakable style of trio playing.
Helge Lien’s resourcefulness and briskly responsive playing makes him a “composer of the moment” in all of his work. - Bjarne Søltoft, Jazznytt (Norway).
Helge Lien Trio is a classic jazz formation – ground piano, double bass and percussion, originally influenced by Bill Evans’ lyric-dynamic style of playing, the band also shows affinity with Keith Jarrett’s narrative inventiveness and the subtle strophic expression of Brad Mehldau. In 2008 Helge Lien Trio won the Norwegian equivalent of the Grammy award for their album „Hello Troll” and achieved international recognition including concerts in Japan, Germany and Canada. Helge Lien Trio released eight albums, the last one in 2014 titled: „Badgers and other beings”.

Helge Lien Trio:
Helge Lien – grand piano
Frode Berg – double bass
Per Oddvar Johansen - percussion
