JOHN SURMAN & ALEXANDER HAWKINS TRIO

JOHN SURMAN & ALEXANDER HAWKINS TRIO

John Surman is revered internationally for his pioneering approach to composition and collaboration, which includes work with brass ensembles, choirs, string quartets and orchestras. A stalwart of the ECM record label, Surman is a key figure in a generation of European jazz musicians who crucially expanded the international horizons of jazz. In his long career, he has won many accolades, most recently, the prestigious Ivor Novello Jazz Award, which recognised his prowess on the baritone saxophone and his body of original works that have extended far beyond the perceived boundaries of the jazz repertoire and are fired by the contrasts of exquisite lyricism, richly textured sound, and intense, full-bodied improvisation.

For this special performance at Junas, Surman is joined by sensational British pianist Alexander Hawkins and his trio, featuring UK musicians Neil Charles on double bass and Stephen Davis on drums. The Trio formed in 2012, and released its debut album in 2015, a masterful combination of freedom and structure, composition and improvisation.  

'une musique ouverte à toutes les aventures, parfaitement maîtrisée pourtant.' (Citizen Jazz)
