Claire Martin interviews award winning pianist Neil Cowley and profiles his brand-new trio recording 'Touch and Flee' featuring bassist Rex Horan and drummer Evan Jenkins. Inspired after the experience of performing his last album 'The Face of Mount Molehill' with a string ensemble, Cowley felt it was time to reappraise the direction his trio were heading. Cowley describes his latest work as the band's 'concert hall record' and captures Neil and his trio on a new voyage of discovery exchanging their loud riffs for a gentler, more reflective sound.
