Join The Jim Blomfield Trio for their debut jazz gig at the Holburne. Like many of the newer generation of jazz players today, the Trio draw their influences from various genres – the eclectic colours of Rock, Drum and Bass, Latin jazz, classical piano and contemporary jazz. This promises to be a night of lyrical and evocative melodies, driving rhythms, rich harmonies, and adventurous solo and group improvisations.
Jim Blomfield (piano/keyboards), Roshan Wijetunge (bass) and Mark Whitlam (drums) are three individual voices whose previous collaborations read like a who’s-who of the UK jazz scene. Following the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Wave Forms and Sea Changes’ on Pig Records, the trio have just released their second album ‘Strange Beauty – Every Way OK.’ Like the first album, the latest release contains a diverse set of Blomfield original compositions, but further develops the trio’s sound world with the incorporation of synthesiser and electronica elements into the mix.
