Chamber jazz trio founded by double bassist Malcolm Creese and featuring Tim Garland (reeds) and Gwilym Simcock (piano, french horn). The group straddle the boundaries between jazz and classical music, often performing in churches and other sacred spaces. They have recently their tenth anniversary as a working unit (2011).
"With their blend of jazz and classical influences Acoustic Triangle have created something unique. Here is proof that in the right hands “crossover” can be good"
"After ten years there's still plenty of life in Acoustic Triangle and tonight's concert definitely felt like a celebration. "
