David Gordon Trio

The trio has made several tours of the UK and Denmark, which have included concerts at PizzaExpress Jazz Club, Dean Street, London, Copenhagen Jazzhouse and the Aarhus Jazz Festival. Saxophonist Andy Sheppard, singer Jacqui Dankworth and guitarist John Etheridge have appeared as guests with the trio. The trio's four CDs have met with critical acclaim, especially in Japan, where they have sold more than 5000 copies and have a devoted fan-base.

With Ole Rasmussen or Jonty Fisher on double bass, and Paul Cavaciuti on drums, the trio has a unique sound, and its own distinctive repertoire, combining cutting-edge improvisation with humour, lyricism and searingly beautiful melodies.

My tune 'Angel Feet' appears in Sher Music's publication 'The European Real Book', while in the UK, tracks from our two most recent releases have been featured on and on jazzfm.

'Speaks Latin'
Our latest project is called 'The David Gordon Trio Speaks Latin!'  Here's what we say about it:

If you thought that Latin jazz was all about salsa and bossa nova The David Gordon Trio Speaks Latin! invites you to think again.  This new project takes a unique and personal look at music from South America, drawing on popular music from that continent, songs which capture the revolutionary spirit of the 60s and 70s - including those by Simón Díaz, Jorge Cafrune, Victor Jara and Mercedes Sosa - and the music of piano masters Horacio Salgán and Egberto Gismonti. Latin jazz tunes by pianists Chick Corea, Lyle Mays and Michel Petrucciani, together with the trio's own Latin-inspired compositions such as David's Second Language make for a spicy feast for all lovers of jazz and Latin music.

See a video clip from the gig.
