David Gordon Trio
Trio led by versatile pianist David Gordon and currently featuring Jonty Fisher (bass) and Paul Cavaciuti (drums). Gordon has recorded five albums in this format, the most recent “Speaks Latin” being a personal exploration of the music of South America.
Follow up “Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band” released in 2015, the centenary of Scriabin’s death. The Gordon trio perform inventive jazz arrangements of Scriabin’s compositions plus other music in a variety of style from the same era.
"An album that combines a genuine spirit of fun with a serious examination of Latin American song forms. "
"Gordon takes an unlikely concept and makes it work superbly. The broad mix of musical styles keeps both band and audience on their toes and the playing is infused with wit and wisdom throughout. "
