David Gordon Trio

To start the final leg of our ‘Tune In’ series, we are delighted to welcome our long-time friends, The David Gordon Trio. They are a group of musicians whom we have been extremely fortunate to have collaborated with on several occasions in our 30-year history, and we are thrilled to be featuring them in our concert series.

David Gordon – piano
Oli Hayhurst – bass
Tom Hooper – drums

The David Gordon Trio has a unique and individual sound world, a strong pedigree and a worldwide following. Their music is characterised by searingly beautiful melodies, free-flowing improvisation and quick-fire humour. All their recordings have received rave reviews in the media in the USA, Japan and Europe, where they have sold more than 10,000 CDs, with their 2016 album Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band receiving the coveted award of Mojo’s Jazz CD of the Year.

The Trio has played festivals, radio and clubs in Europe and the UK, and also collaborated with a wide variety of artists, from singer Jacqui Dankworth and saxophonists Andy Sheppard and Jerry Underwood, to guitarist John Etheridge and tap-dancer/vocalist Lucy Dixon.
