The Berlin-based English trumpeter and composer Tom Arthurs, described by Jazzwise as “a world class improviser”, is regarded as the natural heir to the lyrical jazz legacy of the great Kenny Wheeler, creating music of exquisite beauty, space and spirit. This very rare UK date presents the latest album project, ‘One Year’, from Tom’s international all-star trio, with pianist Richard Fairhurst, an acclaimed Steinway Artist, and percussionist Markku Ounaskari, famed for his ECM recordings with Tomasz Stanko. The concert will be completely acoustic, without amplification.
NB: due to unforeseen circumstances Sinikka Langeland, who was originally advertised as opening the show, is unable to appear. The Tom Arthurs Trio will now play both sets.
