Jazz Steps Presents: Dave Storey Trio - a Live-stream only session
Free to view. Donations welcome
Jazz Steps are proud to present this renowned trio for a one-off special broadcast live from Peggy's Skylight. Use this link [to be added] on the night to view the session.
Playing in the classic jazz tradition and inspired by the true legends of the idiom such as Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson and John Coltrane, the band have cultivated a unique and refined sound throughout their many years of playing together. Characterised by intense energy, often contrasting to cool and ethereal, always with superb originality and intrinsic sense of playfulness.
The trio, led by drummer and composer Dave Storey, has regular saxophonist and composer James Allsopp and, on this occasion, special guest Ross Stanley on Hammond organ.
They are currently celebrating the launch of their second album - Jouska - to critical acclaim, following their brilliant first album Bosco. For this special live-streamed broadcast from Peggy’s, the trio will select a handful of their original compositions from both albums and also perform new, as yet unheard material.
Having gigged extensively as regular performers in and around London and the UK over the last 8 years at clubs such as Ronnie Scott's and The Vortex, their rapport and connectivity on stage is superbly entertaining and the resulting performance shows a deep connection, bringing a unique and captivating sound to an old tradition.
