These guys were brilliant last time here, rightly noted as one of the best jazz gigs in 2016.
The Nigel Price Organ Trio, winner of the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Awards for best jazz ensemble, is led by one of Britain’s finest guitarists.
Nigel Price is a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s where he has racked up over 500 performances, spent three years with the James Taylor Quartet, has performed with the BBC Big Band, Carleen Anderson and the legendary David Axelrod. His blend of flowing, fiery bebop lines, deep blues feeling and the will to swing hard has made him a big hit with jazz fans.
The alliance with Matt Home on drums and Ross Stanley on Hammond organ makes this one of the most exciting jazz bands in the UK today.
Formed in 2002, the trio has worked hard, playing hundreds of venues both in the UK and abroad, including ten residencies at Ronnie Scotts and five extensive UK tours. The by-products of this amount of work are a cohesive chemistry rarely seen between three musicians, an enormous repertoire and the ability to put on a well-thought-out gig that entertains from start to finish.
They will be joined for this show by Vasilis Xenopoulos on Saxophone.
“There’s an exhilarating tight-loose swing and old-school honesty about Price’s brand of soul-bop that leaves you panting” Mojo
