    David Newton Trio

    dnIt has been said that David Newton is 'one of our nation’s treasured pianists'. The man has a lovely touch, that is for certain.

    He’s been the accompanist of choice for vocal royalty for years, and it’s easy to hear why: Newton’s musical responsiveness is as impressive as his re-harmonization and arranging skills at the piano. It can be a fine line between clever and stupid when it comes to re-setting musical chestnuts to the jazz format, but Newton bridges that gap by a good mile or more. He’s the kind of pianist every drummer and bass player could wish for.

    The Tom Hill Trio

    Always popular, local bass player Tom Hill, leads this trio. Expect lots of humour and maybe the occasional vocal, a superb bass player who is joined by Al Gurr on keyboard and Charlie Wright on reeds.
