Hampstead Jazz Club presents the David Gordon Trio launching their brand new album, ‘Pachyderm” – This special evening will feature Tom Hooper on drums, Oli Hayhurst on double bass, and David Gordon on piano.
After their previous two concept-based releases, the trio returns to its roots with a release entirely of original compositions from the pen of award-winning composer/pianist David Gordon.
‘Pachyderm‘ contains a heady mixture of innovation, deep understanding of musical traditions, spontaneous wit, rich melodic language and deep grooves, which ensures a musical result that couldn’t be mistaken for any other trio working in the jazz world today.
The David Gordon Trio has a unique and individual sound world, a strong pedigree and a worldwide following. All their recordings have received rave reviews in media throughout the US, Japan and Europe, where they have sold more than 10,000 CDs. The trio has played festivals, radio and clubs in Europe and the UK, and has collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including singer Jacqui Dankworth, saxophonists Andy Sheppard and Jerry Underwood, guitarist John Etheridge and tap-dancer/vocalist Lucy Dixon.
The much anticipated ‘Pachyderm‘ will be the David Gordon Trio’s seventh studio album. Previous works include: ‘Dozen a Day’ (1998), ‘Undiminished’ (2000), ‘Angel Feet’ (2005),”Second Language’ (2008), ‘Speaks Latin’ (2013) and ‘Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band’ (2016).
