Drummer and composer Sam Jesson has been a key figure on the London jazz scene for some time now, but this tour marks his debut as a bandleader, in trio with saxophonist George Crowley (who has played impressive Jazz Café gigs with Riff Raff and the Olie Brice Quintet) and ‘Art of Sound’ bassist Tom Farmer.

United by their love for the tradition of legendary jazz trios from Ahmed Jamal to Sonny Rollins, Oscar Peterson to Dewey Redman, the trio wind their way through many gems of the jazz canon - some lesser known than others – sometimes deconstructing and breathing new life, sometimes paying homage to classic arrangements, with a devoted focus on making music that feels honest and joyous.
