Woodhead Trio

A welcome back to Andrew Woodhead, this time with his stellar trio. This brand new project gives its debut performance at Birmingham Jazz. Inspired by the Konitz/Haden/Mehldau trio and Paul Motion's On Broadway records, the trio takes standards as a starting point for improvisation; the drum-less lineup gives the three acoustic instruments space to explore nuances of texture, sound and harmony for an intimate listening experience.

The band features two established talents from the London scene: Arnie Somogyi, one of the UK's leading Bass players and bandleaders appearing at the Red Lion for the first time, and rising star Rachael Cohen on Alto Sax, whose debut album Halftime was released in 2013 to much critical acclaim.

Lineup: Andrew Woodhead Piano; Rachael Cohen Sax; Arnie Somogyi Bass
