Sam Leak Trio

— The Be-bop Club
Great pianist fresh from Ronnie Scott's
time:20:30
price: £9.00

Information:

Pianist Sam Leak first performed at the club some years back whilst still at the Royal Academy, since when he has firmly established himself as one of the leading players of his generation. The Sam Leak Trio perform contemporary jazz with a gospel-tinged, and folk-inspired, freedom and abandon. Conjuring up the joy and emotion typified by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett's 1960s trios, the ensemble maintains a sense of the tradition whilst performing music that is very much rooted in the present. Featuring Simon Read on double bass, and Will Glaser on drums, the band perform a mixture of Leak's compositions and some lesser played compositions from their favourite musicians. In 2016/17 the trio toured the UK, playing in Birmingham, Fishguard, Southampton, Leeds and elsewhere. A high point of this tour was a performance at Ronnie Scott’s prestigious International Piano Trio Festival. The trio are currently showcasing Leak's composition 'Adrift,' recorded for Jellymould Jazz in duet with Dan Tepfer - described by Marcus O'Dair as 'astonishing.' "Sam Leak is one of the brightest young stars in the jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser and a brilliant prospect for the future" - Helen Mayhew, JazzFM
