Tickets: £16 adult/ £5 u18
The David Gordon Trio has appeared on BBC Radio 3, at King’s Place, Copenhagen’s Jazzhouse and in the London Jazz Festival; they are also regular performers at London’s 606 club. Their music is characterised by searingly beautiful melodies, free-flowing improvisation and quick-fire humour which is no more evident than in their recent project ‘Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band’ which has received across-the-board praise from jazz critics around the world. Inspired by the Russian pianist/composer genius, this remarkable trio has produced exquisite jazz interpretations of Scriabin’s miniatures – his billets-doux to eternity - and of pieces by Debussy, Irving Berlin and WC Handy. Jazz will love truly outstanding performance.
“Gordon takes an unlikely concept and makes it work superbly. The broad mix of musical styles keeps both band and audience on their toes and the playing is infused with wit and wisdom throughout.” thejazzmann.com
Performance ends at approximately 9.30pm
