|World-class... exquisite... consistently inventive... John Adcock, Jazz Journal||...mines as deep a seam of musical ideas as Brad Mehldau. John Fordham, The Guardian|
This all-star group, led by the award-winning pianist John Turville and featuring lyrical trumpeter Robbie Robson and world-renowned composer-saxophonist Julian Argüelles, was assembled in 2017 to explore a wide-ranging set of new music composed by John plus material from Julian and new arrangements of choice repertoire by Tonino Horta, Michel Petrucciani and John Coltrane. Taking inspiration from British jazz legends John Taylor and Kenny Wheeler, Argentine composer & tango pianist Diego Schissi, and imbued with a deep love of the jazz and classical tradition, John's writing is refined and wide-ranging, from lyrical ballads and spiky rhythmic compositions to reflective classical vignettes and free jazz.
