Jason Rebello: piano; Yuri Goloubev: bass; Asaf Sirkis: drums

Jason Rebello is one of the most inventive pianists to emerge from the UK since he burst onto the scene in the early 90’s. Jason has worked mainly with electronic keyboards in his own groups (as well as with Sting and Jeff Beck), but in 2016 he decided it was time to return to the instrument he loves and released his debut solo piano album “Held” which was rated best album in the 2016 British Jazz Awards. His trio gig at the Crucible Studio was one of the highlights of our 2017 programme and we couldn’t wait to bring him back with this brilliant international trio.

Full £15, Over 60s, disabled and unemployed £12, Student with NUS card £8, 15 – 17 year olds £3, Under 15s Free. CASH ONLY on door. Advance tickets.
