Acres of Blue is the second album in a series of two re-releasing Espen Berg's remarkable early works, originally released on Aklang. Espen has grown to become one of the most influental pianists on the Norwegian and European jazz-scene, constantly touring with different projects including his own piano-trio and his duo with singer Silje Neergard. NXN are proud to highlight this gem of a piano album, and present it to new listeners.
NXN Recordings was established in Oslo in 2019 to release Norwegian cross-over projects. Our aim is to put out interesting, innovative and original music that bends, explores and challenges the established genres. There’s a lot to discover in our catalogue from neo-classical, ambient, jazz, contemporary music, and everything in between. Our releases have the recognizable “Cool Nordic sound” in common, and the music has proven to have global appeal. NXN Recordings is a member of Naxos Music Group.
