The London Jazz Trio formed specifically to play high quality, fun music that people will enjoy – without dumbing down the music in any way We’ve learnt that the best reaction (by far) is to the style of the great Oscar Peterson. James Treweek (pianist) has transcribed many Oscar Peterson classics and uses these arrangements for the band. As well as being very technically demanding, these arrangements are up beat, positive and exciting with a strong blues flavour. This sound seems to be universally liked and appreciated by many different age groups.
In addition the Trio love to play modern pop songs such as “Get Lucky” (Daft Punk) and by artists such as Rihanna, Usher, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles.
The Jazz band is aimed particularly at corporate events, functions, parties and weddings and as such, it’s primary job is to provide the right atmosphere for the occasion.
Each musician in the London Jazz Trio is a full time, freelance, professional musician and highly experienced. They have performed professionally in concerts, theatre shows, recording sessions as well as many exclusive corporate events, wedding and parties.
The trio have also performed with many of the greatest UK jazz musicians (Pete King, Alan Barnes, John Etheridge, Jim Mullen, Gerard Presencer, Stan Sulzmann, Derek Nash, Bobby Wellins, Rex Richardson, Mark Lockhart, Mick Hutton,Clark Tracey, London Musici, & Anita Wardell)…….and at the UK’s best venues (London Palladium, London Hippodrome, Ronnie Scott’s, Royal Albert Hall, Festival Hall, The Ritz, The Dorchester, The Savoy,)
The musicians know exactly how to “read a room” and play the right music at the right time. Of course, they also know the value of arriving at the venue early, looking smart and knowing how to interact with clients.
Why Hire London Jazz Trio?
A quick look at our clients quotes section above is a good place to start 🙂
Also, we take a high degree of return bookings.
We’re currently due to play our fifth consecutive “New Year’s Day” event at the prestigious Great Fosters luxury country house in Surrey.
We’ve performed on five separate occasions on-board the exclusive private residence at sea – “The World“. (If you don’t know anything about The World, it’s worth a look!) We’ve also been invited back for a sixth time.
The key to this Jazz band is that we can create an atmosphere of excitement and energy (or quiet sophistication), with enthusiasm that comes from playing good music, well.
We like to play music that people know, whatever the age group, yet keeping the group’s own individual style and never “dumbing down” the music
