Tommy Scott Trio
20 years ago, British pianist Tommy Scott emerged onto the jazz scene as a teenage prodigy, championed by the likes of Joey Calderazzo and Danilo Perez and described as “astonishing” by Jazz Review.
In the years since, he’s been quietly developing his playing from his base in the English countryside. Heavily influenced by the style and energy of Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner & Kenny Kirkland, he returns with a brand new trio project for 2019, featuring double bassist Yuri Goloubev and drummer Asaf Sirkis.
Between them, these musicians have played with many of the modern European jazz greats, from Dave Holland and Gary Husband to Wolfgang Muthspiel and Paolo Fresu – and bring together a technical mastery, individual virtuosity and, above all, a strong sense of melody, that has been captivating audiences.
