Sam Leak – Piano

Simon Read – Double Bass

Will Glaser – Drums

 

Sam Leak is a London-based Jazz pianist described by JazzFM’s Helen Mayhew as ‘One of the brightest stars in the Jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser, and a brilliant prospect for the future.’ His album “Aquarium” was one of MOJO Magazine’s ‘Top Ten International Releases of the Year.’

The Sam Leak Trio perform contemporary jazz with a gospel-tinged, and folk-inspired, freedom and abandon. Conjuring up the joy and emotion typified by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett’s 1960s trios, the ensemble maintains a sense of the tradition whilst performing music that is very much rooted in the present. Featuring Simon Read on double bass, and Will Glaser on drums, the band perform a mixture of Leak’s compositions and some lesser played compositions from their favourite musicians. Tonight the trio will be launching Leak’s new album “Adrift,” recorded for Jellymould Jazz in duet with Dan Tepfer, described by Marcus O’Dair as ‘astonishing.’ Described as “compelling” and “reaching far beyond the jazz loop” (John Fordham), ‘Adrift’ is a unique composition for two pianos that explores the range of colours and possibilities offered by the unconventional lineup. Sometimes densely complex, at others eerily sparse; the writing is engaging and melodic, conjuring up images of a snow-brushed New York in winter. The composition was originally written for 2014’s Steinway festival, held at London’s Pizza Express Jazz Club. The success of this performance led the pianists to record the album at the Yamaha Piano Rooms in Midtown New York in January 2016.
