Swedish pianist Jacob Karlzon has been compared to such luminaries as Keith Jarrett, Bill Evans and Sweden’s own legendary pianist Jan Johansson. His playing style demonstrates his technical brilliance, rhythmic and harmonic complexity. Followed by American pianist Eric Lewis (ELEW) who’s known for combining heady rock wig-outs with delicate improvisations his boldly flamboyant style took him to sold-out concert halls, TED lectures, celebrity bashes and the Whitehouse.

Now in its fourth year and a much anticipated feature of the international jazz calendar, the festival celebrates the piano trio both as a driving force in jazz innovation and keeper of the jazz tradition. Featuring jazz heavyweights and rising stars from around the world, it aims to represent the depth and breadth of the piano scene. Modern mavericks, mainstream stars and freewheeling trailblazers sit side by side in a series of dynamic double-bill pairings and a special set of Late Late Shows that keep things smouldering to the wee hours with sessions from some of the UK’s best piano trios.

The breadth of this year’s festival is illustrated so well by trailblazers Tin Men and the Telephone who augment their jazz improv with live electronics and technology to create a unique multimedia experience, while American star Eric Lewis (ELEW) brings hearty swing from the jazz traditions laced with a contemporary rock ethos. Heavyweight Norwegian Tord Gustavsen slows down the pace with a reflective set of lyrical beauty, while virtuoso Cuban pianist Marialy Pacheco blends lightning speed and thrilling cadenzas with hushed lullaby passages.
