Gwilym Simcock Trio with Tinalley String Quartet
(AUSTRALIA/UK)

A leading light of the sizzling new jazz generation, pianist Gwilym Simcock brings the harmonic sophistication of a classical background and some head-spinning, jawdropping, big-time jazz chops. In the words of Chick Corea, ‘Gwilym’s an original. A creative genius.’

His trio is joined by one of Australia’s hottest young ensembles, the Tinalley String Quartet, for an evening of diverse and sublime music.

It may be bold to compare Simcock with Jarrett, but it's apt. ALLABOUTJAZZ

[Tinalley demonstrate] breathtaking technique and veritable perfect playing together, along with stupendous musicality. TRIERISCH VOLKSFREUND
