David Gordon Trio with Christian Garrick

Saturday 23rd March 2019, 7:30pm

Pinner Parish Church

Classically-inspired Jazz trio with renowned Jazz Violinist

Both of these highly talented and creative musicians have very local roots; David was brought up in Pinner and Christian in Berkhamsted.

David is a jazz and classical composer and pianist and tonight will be in jazz mode, where he is amongst the most exciting musicians on the contemporary scene. He says “I started piano lessons at age 4, composing at 6, and discovered jazz for myself at the keyboard one day at 10. The house where I grew up was always full of baroque music, and contained a harpsichord. Jazz and baroque music have remained equally irresistible forces on me ever since”.

Christian Garrick is an improvising violinist, a composer and a bandleader. At age 8, he met Stephane Grappelli at The Stables in Wavendon, an encounter that would influence him and his playing enormously. He studied at London's Royal Academy of Music, gaining first-class honours in his performers' degree and winning the DipRAM in his post-graduate year. He is active on the international concert circuit and on the London studio session scene. He is a professor of jazz and non-classical violin at three of London’s major music conservatoires. He has worked with artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Nigel Kennedy, Julian Joseph, Van Morrison, and Martin Taylor. He has made tours of the Far East and Australia with guitarist John Etheridge in a tribute to Stephane Grappelli and in 2001 he toured Israel with Dame Cleo Laine and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He is a member of Alec Dankworth's Spanish Accents and tonight Alec will be on Double Bass.

The name Dankworth needs no introduction and Alec is worthy of it in his own right. He is an award-winning jazz bassist and composer who, in addition to leading several groups of his own, has worked with an amazing list of artists including Van Morrison, Stephane Grappelli, Abdullah Ibrahim, and The Dave Brubeck Quartet.

To complete the quartet, Tom Hooper will be on drums. Tom began playing professionally at age 14, before moving to London to gain a degree in jazz performance from the Royal Academy of Music. Having left college Tom embarked on a professional career that has taken him all over the world performing and recording with many artists including Sir John Dankworth.

These musicians have played together many times and are sure to give us an exhilarating evening.
