LONDON: Vortex

TUE 10TH JUN, 2014 8.00pm

Jazz is dead - oh yeah? The piano trio offers nothing new - what? For connoisseurs and newcomers, a mega monthly series of trios that blow the limits of what 3 musicians can do together sonically. Check your Tuesdays.

March 4, Kris Davis / John Hebert / Tom Rainey
April 29, Michael Wollny Trio
May 13, Tony Malaby / Olie Brice / Jeff Williams
June 10, Alexander Hawkins / Neil Charles / Tom Skinner
July TBC

Alexander Hawkins (piano), Neil Charles (double bass), Tom Skinner (drums)

Alexander Hawkins is a pianist who is 'unlike anything else in modern creative music' (Ni Kantu) and whose recent work has reached a 'dazzling new apex' (Downbeat). Whist audiences are perhaps more familiar with his Ensemble - 'one of the most distinctive in modern jazz' (The Jazzmann) - this evening presents a relatively newer formation: Hawkins' personal take on the classic piano trio format, bringing to bear the same kaleidoscope of influences which have seen him collaborating regularly with musicians ranging from Mulatu Astatke to Marshall Allen, Joe McPhee, Louis Moholo-Moholo and many others besides.

Alongside Hawkins' piano are Neil Charles (double bass) and Tom Skinner (drums), both established bandleaders with a bewildering array of credits, both live and on record (Jack DeJohnette, Owiny Sigoma, Mingus Big Band, Sons of Kemet, etc.)
