Monday July 16th, Beaver Inn, Appledore: Jonathon Gee Trio One of the UK’s finest jazz pianists plays a return gig with his trio
Always compelling and entertaining, Jonathan Gee has been praised by the Independent as a ‘reflective, beautifully poised pianist’ , by Time Out as ‘sparky and sensitive’ and by Jazzwise Magazine for ‘his breathlessly sparkling originality’.
Jonathan is a widely travelled musician and has led award-winning trios in Italy, France, Finland and the USA. To quote The Guardian:"Gee's band works like the best piano trios, with conversational exchanges between the instruments - he can swing hard with drive, he can be reflective like Bill Evans, and his originals are strong.’
Jonathan will be joined by the top rhythm team of Marcus Vergette on bass and Andy Trim on drums. They will play pieces from Jonathan’s recent album Dragonfly plus music by Theolonius Monk, the Beatles, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder and others.
