Dominic J Marshall Trio

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Dominic J Marshall returns to Pizza Express with his trio in a new guise: has been sharing his life between the UK and Holland and so has been running two line-ups in parallel. 'The Triolithic' brings these two ensembles and experiences together for the first time - “A jazz‐record that twirls with energy” (NRC)  It’s the first time that the Dutch line up, feat. Glenn Gaddum jr (Anouk, Frank McComb, José James, Kris Bowers) and Jamie Peet (Windkracht 7, Ramon Valle, Jesse van Ruller, Kris Bowers, Pete Philly, Gregory Porter) comes over to the UK for only a few appearances– a real treat! The band will play music from this acclaimed album and we can also count on being surprised with new pieces.

“ With all the headlines about Glasper and Kamasi, it’s time to make some room for an ultra-hip yet jazz-schooled Brit doing his own challenging version of hip hop and electronica-charged soulful cosmic jazz.” - Selwyn Harris (Jazzwise)

"The trio’s 21st century groove is as it should be – of its time, yet the effortless switching to elegant, swing time sections is truly the preserve of the schooled musician" - Russell Corbett (Jazz Breakfast)

Dominic J Marshall finds a piano trio format a very intimate and inspiring setting. The compositional approach to improvising has been one of the main elements of the trio’s work as a band, as well as Dominic and his band mates’ insatiable hunger for inspiration which they take from jazz, classical, hip-hop, soul, folk and everything in between. Yet, their sound has a surprising oneness to it and is definitely uncompromising and their own.
