Formed in 2007 for a performance in Swindon, Trio have chalked up successful dates at Brecon Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott's, Wavendon Summer Jazz and many other top venues and festivals. Their music consists of jazz originals and standards, bringing a modern slant to this tried and respected format. The interplay of the instruments is both audibly and visibly exciting and produces solid time combined with swinging and melodic jazz lines.
The band combines the massive individual talents of three hugely successful exponents of modern jazz. Bassist Alec Dankworth is the son of the late John Dankworth and Cleo Laine, and plays with the Dave Brubeck Quartet. Virtuoso pianist John Critchinson first gained recognition from his work with Ronnie Scott's groups and at Ronnie's club in the house band. Dave Cliff is one of the country’s leading jazz guitarists.
