Dominic J Marshall Dutch Trio  -  Thu Mar 29, 2018  |  08:00 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
“The Dominic J Marshall trio has found both its own energy and its own authentic sound, and is an asset to the European jazz scene.”

This quote from the Dutch paper Nederlands Dagblad illustrates the way in which the pianist is almost the epitome of the international spirit that has swept through the European jazz scene in recent years. Born in Scotland, he studied at Leeds College of Music, forming a trio with fellow Leeds graduates Sam Vicary and Sam Gardner. But for his Masters degree he moved to Amsterdam, where a new version of the trio emerged, with bassist Glenn Gaddum Jr and drummer Jamie Peet.

It’s an openness that’s also reflected in his music, which, right from the start, has been marked by a responsiveness to many different influences, and an insatiable appetite for forging adventurous links between genres. At the launch of his album ‘The Triolithic’ he was described as “surging enigmatically through jazz, classical, hip-hop, soul, folk and everything in between, into a realm of expression that is uncompromisingly his own”. Names as diverse as Bill Evans, Robert Glasper and J Dilla all get tossed into the critical mix, but really the only name that can be applied to this music is Dominic J Marshall!

The pianist continues to work regularly with his two trios, and the original outfit has played several enthusiastically received Tyneside gigs. But this Globe performance, a co-promotion between Jazz North East and the Jazz Coop, marks the first ever UK appearance for the powerfully driving Dutch team. It’s a great opportunity for his growing number of Tyneside fans to catch up with another side of a brilliantly multi-faceted artist, and for new listeners to discover just how good he is.
