September 20th Nigel Price Organ Trio with Vasilis Xenopoulos
Nigel Price – who led his organ trio to pick up the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Award for “best jazz ensemble” – is one of the most highly regarded and in demand guitarists on the UK jazz scene today. He spent three years with the James Taylor Quartet, is a member of The Filthy Six – the latest signing on the legendary Acid Jazz label – and is also a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s. His blend of flowing bebop lines, deep blues feeling and mastery of chording has made him instantly accessible and popular with jazz audiences.
The alliance with Matt Home on drums and Ross Stanley on Hammond organ makes this is one of the most exciting jazz bands in the UK today. Formed in 2002, the trio has worked hard, playing hundreds of venues both in the UK and abroad, including seven residencies at Ronnie Scott’s club in London and two extensive Jazz Services funded tours. The by-products of this amount of work are a cohesive chemistry rarely seen between three musicians, an enormous repertoire and the ability to put on a well-thought-out gig that entertains from start to finish. Joining the group on tonight’s performance is Vasilis Xenopoulos, one of the finest saxophone players ever to herald from Greece. This remarkable jazz musician is fast making a name for himself and adds a fiery spark as he augments the trio to a quartet.
“There’s an exhilarating tight-loose swing and old-school honestly about Price’s brand of soul-bop that leaves you panting” – Mojo
