David Gordon Trio

David Gordon Trio Speaks Latin

David Gordon Trio Speaks Latin sees the trio yet again in sparkling form. Released in 2013 on Nimbus Alliance Records, this CD takes a unique and personal look at music from South America, drawing both on popular music from that continent and songs which capture the revolutionary spirit of the 60s and 70s. 'Standards', including versions of Tico Tico and Quizas Quizas Quizas, played like never before, together with originals and Latin jazz tunes by Egberto Gismonti and Lyle Mays, make for a spicy feast for all lovers of jazz and Latin music.

Second language

This, their fourth CD on ZahZah, finds the David Gordon Trio in greater telepathic contact than ever, playing their strongest material yet. Included on the album is their version of the already oft-recorded Greenland, the insouciant Second Language and their roof-raising hit Salsova. Aspects of Latin jazz rub shoulders with hints of gypsy and klezmer, a mantra from Tibet, a Finnish-Swedish folk song and a riotous version of Cole Porter’s What Is This Thing Called Love, all imbued with the trio’s usual transparency, polish and panache. A tour de force of contemporary European jazz, suitable for aficionados and new generations of jazz lovers alike.

Angel Feet

The third disc from the David Gordon Trio was the culmination of two years' intensive work. The recording is a landmark in the trio's development, and their particular style of jazz features Celtic, 'acoustic groove' and classical - even baroque - influences, and also includes the appearance of a tango and a rhumba.

Undiminished

In trio playing, as in life, it’s necessary to emerge from the nursery and to mature. ‘Undiminished’, the follow-up, is the ambiguously-named title-track using much more of the language of contemporary jazz, and includes a last-minute experiment in adding to the already-rich texture. Interplay, odd-metre and experimenting with standards are all explored on this ever-popular recording.

Dozen A Day

Dozen A Day is the result of an extraordinary day of recording at London's famous AIR Studios. The trio re-creates the sparkle and clarity of its live performance in a mixture of original compositions and jazz standards, presenting a wonderful range of moods and contrasts. At one end of the spectrum the bright nursery rhyme quality of the opening track 'Mister Sam' to the lullaby elements of 'Blue Pyrenees', the poetry of 'How Insensitive' and the evergreen 'Looking Up'. A thrilling debut album from this young trio.
