Alexander Hawkins Trio
Trio led by pianist and composer Alexander Hawkins and featuring Neil Charles (double bass) and Tom Skinner (drums, percussion). Excellent eponymous debut album released in April 2015 on Hawkins’ own label.
"This is a surprisingly accessible album but it is also a highly adventurous one as Hawkins' obvious love of the jazz tradition is merged with bright new ideas of his own. "
