Elliott Sansom Trio
This new live performance commissioned by Jazz West Midlands exclusively for you to enjoy, chosen by John Davies from Clun Valley Jazz. This performance was recorded in a studio setting, and may feature again in future broadcasts. Elliott Sansom, born in 1994, grew up in a musical family, and from a young age he was exposed to different types of music, particularly blues music, becoming intrigued by the music of Ray Charles. There was always a piano in the household, and from five years old, Elliott began experimenting with the instrument after showing a keen interest when hearing his mother and grandma playing. Throughout school and college years, Elliott opted to study music and was very tuned into jazz and improvisation, showing a passion for artists such as Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson. In 2010, Elliott gained a place at Yehudi Menuhin School. This was a great opportunity and set him on the right pathway in his musical journey. Further that year, Elliott gained a place at the Junior Jazz department at the Birmingham Conservatoire, following up with the main course resulting in a first class BA (hons).
Line Up: Elliott Sansom - Piano, James Owston - Bass & Nathan England-Jones - Drums
