2014 European Young Jazz Musician of the year! Thereâ€™s a real buzz around pianist Elliott Galvin (a regular sidekick of Laura Jurd) and this trio. Their debut album â€˜Dreamlandâ€™ was hailed as â€œaudaciously accomplishedâ€ by John Fordham (GUARDIAN) and â€œone of the strongest debuts from a UK artistâ€ by Jez Nelson (BBC Radio 3, Jazz on 3) and this promises to be an unmissable and enchanting performance. European Young Jazz Musician of the Year is a big award it takes originality, technique and a deep jazz feel to win it. Elliott has them all. Typically Galvin might begin a piece with churchbell-like peals on a tinkling toy piano, then crisscross them with a hip-hop groove, and eventually a clanking, fragmentary real- piano melody. A cute take on an orthodox blues might follow. THE DATE OF THIS PERFORMANCE IS FRIDAY JANUARY 8TH. WHICH IS A CORRECTION TO THAT IN OUR PRINTED PROGRAMME
