Day 2 – Thursday 28.06.07

Sean Hargreaves Trio + Garforth Jazz Rock Band

Sean Hargreaves piano, Andy Hamill bass, Tristan Mailliot drums

Sean Hargreaves trio features some of the UKs finest young musicians. The trio are contemporary in terms of material, arrangement and production and their music draws diverse influences from Chopin to Mahler, from Oscar Peterson to Led Zeppelin.

‘Hargreaves has a flair for unusual rhythmic settings. Swing, reggae, waltz time, slow ballad – he deploys them all with consummate skill ’Dave Gelly,The Observer

The evening will begin with a set by Garforth Jazz Rock Band, a group of young musicians led by Dave Evans. Their set will include an exciting new commission by Sean Hargreaves who will lead workshop sessions with the band throughout May and June.

‘Garforth Jazz Rock Band is an amazing orchestra!’ Dennis Rollins

‘…The Sean Hargreaves trio is one of the best trios in Europe now by virtue of their incredible musical versatility and swing’ Goran Engstrom,Smalands- Tidningen, Sweden

‘…the scalding energy of his playing is anything but respectfully studious.You ’ll definitely be hearing from him.’ ****John Fordham, The Guardian
