London Jazz Festival 2012: Neil Cowley

Claire Martin presents the Neil Cowley Trio performing with the Goldsmith (Big) Strings at the 2012 London Jazz Festival.

Neil Cowley is a blazingly original pianist/composer with his own take on the traditional jazz piano. Today's London Jazz Festival performance is the culmination of an exclusive project created in collaboration with Goldsmiths College. Together with violinist/arranger Julian Ferraretto, Cowley aims to turn the way classical music is prepared and played. Cowley and Ferraretto will challenge a specially-assembled 30 piece 'big strings' orchestra to cast aside the principles of classical music, and replace with the theory of jazz improvisation and playing by ear, bringing new life to music from the trio's highly acclaimed release, The Face of Mount Molehill, as well as material specially composed for the concert.
