‘One of the most exciting young ensembles to have emerged in the last year’ BBC Jazz
Legendary Scottish percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie has been profoundly deaf since the age of 12 and taught herself to hear with parts of her body other than her ears. She describes her recent collaboration with Trio HLK as ‘a venture out of my comfort zone’ and it may be that this concert is unlike anything you’ve heard before.
With Rich Harrold on piano, Ant Law on guitar and Richard Kass on drums, Trio HLK recorded its first album last year with Dame Evelyn on vibraphone and marimba, and Steve Lehman on sax.
Their music subtly develops from jazz standards into rhythmically intricate compositions and complex frameworks for improvisations, leading the listener into unknown territory by a familiar thread. At times challenging, at others mesmeric, described as ‘elegant, dizzying, serene’ (London Jazz Review) – this will be the concert that everyone will be talking about. Book early.
