The Tim Richards Trio
After a memorable performance at the 2014 festival, jazz pianist Tim Richards returns with his TRIO, this time with the new line-up of Alex Keen (double bass) and Daniel Howard (drums). Expect an exciting blend of swinging jazz standards, original compositions, blues, latin and modal jazz.
Tim has been a presence on the national and international jazz scene since the early 1980s as leader of the groups ‘Spirit Level’, the 9-piece ‘Great Spirit’, and the 6-piece ‘Hextet’ – whose album ‘Telegraph Hill’ was described in The Observer as “A joy from beginning to end”. The Trio have released three acclaimed albums on the 33Jazz label.
“A highly distinctive solo voice, blues and gospel tinged, but with a percussive drive betraying his roots in hard bop.” - The Independent
