Elliot Gavin is one of the rising stars of UK jazz. A superbly gifted composer and pianist, whose maverick imagination and magpie like ability to blend a disparate world of influences into his own unique musical vision has seen him compared to Django Bates, although in truth he sounds like no one except himself. His critically acclaimed latest trio album featuring long term collaborators Corrie Dick on Drums and Tom McCredie on drums was Live-mixed and recorded direct to vinyl, each side in one continuous take, and is his most stripped back and honest album yet.

Sam Leak is a London-based Jazz pianist described by JazzFM's Helen Mayhew as 'One of the brightest stars in the Jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser, and a brilliant prospect for the future.'


For this special Cambridge Jazz Festival concert, Sam's new piano trio will be exploring a set of brand-new compositions ahead of their next trip into the studio. Fresh off a tour that has left audiences across the UK spellbound, this performance is not to be missed.
