Drummer and composer Sam Jesson has been a key figure on the London Jazz scene for some time now, and his tour in December 2019 marks his debut as a bandleader, in his 'Magpie' trio with Tom Farmer (Empirical) and George Crowley (Ivo Neame Quartet).
United by their love for the tradition of legendary jazz trios from Ahmed Jamal to Sonny Rollins, Oscar Peterson to Dewey Redman, the trio wind their way through many gems of the jazz canon - some lesser known than others – sometimes deconstructing and breathing new life, sometimes paying homage to classic arrangements, with a devoted focus on making music that feels honest and joyous.
