Young quartet fronted by mentor

ESP is a collective that stems from Molde-born guitarist Espen Bjarnar's initiative. The group released their first CD this spring.
Arne Torvik, also from Molde, plays the piano and keyboards while swede Tomas Järmyr, Bjarnar's classmate from attending jazz-courses at NTNU, plays the drums. Another classmate, Dan Peter Sundland, contributes to the bands distinctive expression through his unusually personal play-style on the electric bass. At the top of this - or at the base, if you prefer - is a veteran that not only inspires a lot of up-and-coming jazz-musicians, but who also improves himself time and time again; John Pål Inderberg (Baritone Saxophone)!
