After a short break to recharge our batteries Huddersfield Jazz is back with it's Autumn & Winter programme. First of our artists to appear in The Jazz Room is the fabulous Nigel Price Organ Trio.
The Nigel Price Organ Trio, winner of the 2010 Parliamentary Jazz Awards for ‘best jazz ensemble’
is led by one of Britain’s finest guitarists. Nigel Price is a regular performer at Ronnie Scott’s
where he has racked up over 500 performances, spent three years with the James Taylor Quartet,
has performed with the BBC Big Band, Carleen Anderson and the legendary David Axelrod.
His blend of flowing, fiery bebop lines, deep blues feeling and the will to swing hard has made him a big hit with jazz fans.
Nigel will be joined by legendary drummer Steve Brown and the incredible organist Ross Stanley.
Formed in 2002, the trio has worked hard, playing hundreds of venues both in the UK and abroad,
including ten residencies at Ronnie Scott’s club in London and five extensive UK tours.
The by-products of this amount of work are a cohesive chemistry rarely seen between three musicians, an enormous repertoire and the ability to put on a well-thought-out gig that entertains from start to finish.
“There’s an exhilarating tight-loose swing and old-school honestly
about Price’s brand of soul-bop that leaves you panting” – Mojo
“The real thing” – London Jazz News
“Brilliant” – The Evening Standard
