“One of Europe’s most exciting ensembles over the past decade… sophisticated, classically inspired but viscerally powerful”, according to the Guardian’s jazz reviewer John Fordham. The Swiss-based VEIN Trio has established an enviable reputation among jazz audiences for both stylistic diversity and technical accomplishment. Hear a recording of part their gig at Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2018; to see them performing as trio plus guest saxophonist,.
As well as garnering acclaim across Europe as a trio, VEIN have collaborated with guest saxophonists, including Dave Liebman, Greg Osby and Andy Sheppard. Tonight’s concert features another long-term collaborator, British sax legend Stan Sulzmann. Hear his great tone on recordings on Soundcloud and check out his website at https://www.stansulzmann.co.uk/.
Together they will blend the complexity of European classical chamber music with the thrills and energy of jazz improvisation at its most sophisticated.
Watch a video https://youtu.be/NeMYkWiQOZg of the VEIN trio with guest saxophonist Greg Osby. This gives an impression of the trio with a sax player: apologies we are not able reference a video of the trio with Stan Sulzmann who, of course, features in our Bonington gig).
