Music: Dave Storey Trio

June 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

From £12

The Dave Storey Trio present material from their third album ‘CIRCEO’ featuring their signature quicksilver interplay honed over almost a decade of playing and touring together. The jazz tradition brought to life for the 21st century – communication with love, humour and fire.
Featuring long term collaborators multi-award winning saxophonist James Allsopp (Kit Downes, Last Poets) and Conor Chaplin (Dinosaur, Ari Hoenig), CIRCEO sees a venture into a more ethereal sound world, but one that still retains a harmonious blend of soulful grooves, soaring solos and musical conversation.

Dave Storey studied at the Royal Academy of Music with many influential drummers such as Gene Calderazzo, Martin France, Jeff Williams and Jim Hart. This led him on to record and gig with many of the UK’s top jazz artists, including pianist Ivo Neame, Chris Batchelor, Hannes Riepler and guitarist Mike Outram. He also plays in some of the finest up-and-coming groups, regularly performing at top UK venue’s such as Ronnie Scott’s and The Vortex.

Saxophonist James Allsopp received the BBC Jazz Award for innovation and a Ronnie Scott Jazz Award for his first album in 2008. As well as working with his own projects he has played as a sideman for Dr John, The Last Poets, Django Bates, Polar Bear and Jamie Cullum amongst others. Alongside performing he teaches both saxophone and clarinet at the Royal Academy of Music and at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Born in the south west of Ireland and then growing up mostly in Surrey, bassist Conor Chaplin studied at Trinity College of Music in Greenwich under the tutelage of Simon Purcell, Steve Watts, and others. He is currently touring mainly with such projects as Marius Neset’s ‘Happy’ Quintet, rising star saxophonist Emma Rawicz, Laura Jurd’s Mercury Prize nominated group Dinosaur, and guitarist Tom Ollendorff’s trio.
