EveryAudio is proud to present two of the top fusion jazz trios making a name for themselves on the scene right now. Making their return to PizzaExpress after their debut sell out gig in 2021, is St. Barbe. A dynamic and high octane guitar led trio dissolving the lines between jazz, rock and electronic music. Following them, and releasing his debut EP 'Jazz Cats', is Bristol based is Alex Veitch and his trio. Expect a night of hard groove, killer solos and brand new original trio music.

Dissolving the lines between jazz, rock and electronic music, St. Barbe create a rich and expansive sound world fuelled by high-octane improvisation, ethereal textures and complex beats.

Their debut E.P ‘Shapeless’ was released in January 2021 and garnered support from Spotify’s editorial jazz playlists as well as earning them a feature in Guitar Magazine. Their live set draws on the compositions of ‘Shapeless’ and an eclectic range of new material, offering an immersive blend of extended improvisations and intricate trio arrangements that move freely from delicate melodicism to full-throttle fusion.

"Injecting their brand of jazz with a healthy shot of alternative rock, St. Barbe deliver a slick, fresh take on the genre that brings it straight into the twenty-first century.”

The Alex Veitch Trio features James Vine on drums [Waldo’s Gift] and Chris Jones on bass [We are Leif]. The group plays all original groove music influenced by hip-hop and funk with heavy synth pads, rhodes melodies, and space for solos and improvisations. Think J Dilla x Brad Mehldau.

This event marks the release of Alex’s debut EP ‘Jazz Cats’. Alex is an award winning pianist, graduated from Guildhall, with a current bimonthly residency at Ronnie Scott’s. He has lived in Bristol for the last 4 years and plays as a sideman in bands including MADLY, Silvertongue, and Bristol Street Music EveryAudio is a multimedia service providing education, music event promotion and production, online distribution, bespoke musical arrangements and compositions plus many more services.
