"Multi-faceted and smart as a pin, this is poetic chamber jazz of a very high order" MOJO ★★★★


The Sam Leak Trio perform contemporary jazz with a gospel-tinged, and folk-inspired, freedom and abandon, invoking the joy and emotion typified by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett's 1960s trios. Showcasing music from their upcoming album, the ensemble maintains a sense of the tradition whilst performing music that is very much rooted in the present. Drawing on Leak's background in music psychology the music will be interspersed with fascinating insights about music and how we perceive it.

Lineup:
Sam Leak - Piano
Simon Read - Double Bass
Will Glaser - Drums


★★★★ All About Jazz

★★★★ Jazzwise Magazine

the music is magical... constantly evolving and engaging...” - The New York City Jazz Record

"This is assured and sophisticated acoustic jazz with deep roots in the tradition, that knows exactly what it's trying to do - and succeeds" - Daniel Spicer, BBC Music Magazine

"The Royal Academy of Music's jazz programme has produced a remarkable crop of newcomers in recent times: notably the Mercury-nominated pianists Gwilym Simcock and Kit Downes. Now comes Sam Leak, an artist of comparable promise...Leak is a subtle storyteller who keeps the grooves and colours changing" - John Fordham, The Guardian
