Dean Stockdale Trio – The Globe, Newcastle
Dean Stockdale is a highly regarded jazz pianist, arranger and composer based in the North of England. He is known for his sensitive, swinging style and regularly appears around the UK with his trio and with some of the best names in UK jazz. His biggest influences in jazz are the piano styles of Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Gene Harris, Mulgrew Miller and Erroll Garner. His recent trio album ‘Promise The Moon’ was released on 12 March 2021 to excellent reviews and has been featured on Jazz FM. He returns to the Globe with his trio featuring Abbie Finn on drums and Mick Shoulder on bass, playing material from the album alongside fresh takes on standards and Dean’s original compositions.
“Stockdale’s playing is consistently engaging and uniformly excellent” – Ian Mann
“The trio’s swinging take on Gershwin’s They Can’t Take That Away from Me and again on an effective arrangement of On the Sunny Side of the Street are particular highlights, and the closing selection, Witchcraft, with its fleeting echoes of Moon River, make Promise the Moon a fine album.” – Bebop Spoken Here
