Trombonist Samuel Blaser_Cheltenham Jazz Festival_may

For the largest Jazz Festival outside London, Samuel Blaser arrived with his exciting trio for a rare UK performance. His grounding in jazz and classical music produces tunes which develop seamlessly through wonderful interaction between the trio members. French guitarist Marc Ducret (known in the UK for his work with Tim Berne) and Danish drummer Peter Bruun (also a member of Django Bates Beloved band) complete the international line-up. As part of its programme, the trio released a new album on the UK label Whirlwind Recording to coincide with the performance.
