The Hampstead Jazz Club brings you this legendary jazz trio doing things with jazz that is fresh and invigorating!
“Devoted young originals including drummer Sam Jesson and saxophonist George Crowley … simultaneously cherished where jazz has been, and relished where it might be headed” The Guardian
This trio has united by the love of legendary jazz trios from Ahmed Jamal to Sonny Rollins, Oscar Peterson and Dewey Redman. The trio wind their way through many gems of the jazz canon – some lesser known than others – sometimes deconstructing and breathing new life, sometimes paying homage to classic arrangements, with a devoted focus on making music that feels honest and joyous.
Contemporary & spontaneous interpretations of old material, with the trio approaching their sources in a spirit of genuine affection, but still determined to leave their own stamp on the music. 4* – JazzMann
“An unplugged sax, double bass and drums trio might seem austere, but not when it’s young drummer Sam Jesson’s band. Jesson’s Magpie Trio (the name implies creative scavengers) … saxist George Crowley and Empirical bassist Tom Farmer complete the picture.” – The Observer
4* – Magpie Trio: Live – Jazzwise Magazine
Sam Jesson – drums
George Crowley – sax
Tom Farmer – double bass
