Daniel Herskedal Trio
Norwegian star Daniel Herskedal presents new album Harbour at the EFG London Jazz Festival, reuniting with pianist Eyolf Dale and Andreas Helge Norbakken.
Full of awe-inspiring melodies soaring over a bed-rock of rhythmical precision laid down by Dale and Norbakken, 'Harbour' is Herskedal’s masterpiece.
The Norwegian landscape has always played a vital role in his music – natural, bold, vast but with a sense of minimalism in the space and wild openness. Harbour’s inspiration comes from a sense of being close to the sea and taking shelter from the storms and wild elements. Daniel has proved he has the facility, vision and musicianship to push the boundaries of his instrument, technically and sonically, further than anyone before. Harbour is the result of a consummate musician perfecting his craft and musicianship over many years.
A beautiful blend of musicality and sonic storytelling that steers a true course through new, uncharted, waters.Buzzmag
