David Gordon Trio - Album Showcase606 Club, SW10 0QD , [Venue Details]
An assured and versatile pianist, David Gordon is one of the few professional jazz musicians who is also a well-established classical artist.
An accomplished harpsichordist as well as pianist, David includes work as soloist/director with the likes of the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra, the London Chamber Orchestra and Concerto Köln and as an award-winning composer he has had works commissioned by festivals, orchestras and fellow musicians alike. As a jazz pianist he has a repertoire that focuses on original compositions by the band, but also includes material as diverse as folk music from Venezuela, East European dance tunes and Celtic-tinged melodies.
After the critical acclaim given to the trio’s recent fascinating project “Alexander Scriabin's Ragtime Band” - ‘one of the finest trio records I have heard in a very long time’ (Stereopluss, Norway) and Mojo’s Jazz CD of the Year - their latest project ‘Pachyderm’ which they are showcasing tonight marks a return to the group’s original compositions, flecked with occasional unfusty references to Bach and the baroque.
