Sam Braysher received critical acclaim for his recent debut album Golden Earrings (Fresh Sound New Talent Records, 2017), a duo recording with the New York pianist Michael Kanan, and their accompanying UK launch tour. His new trio project sees him accompanied by an exceptionally swinging young London rhythm section and presenting thoughtful takes on a diverse repertoire, ranging from Dexter Gordon to Gershwin incidental numbers to Disney. The group's sound is informed by the groovy ensemble concepts and arrangements of Ahmad Jamal, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Rollins.
‘delightful and surprising’ Dave Gelly, The Observer
‘utterly swinging, with the restraint that comes from complete self-assurance, and hip as a New York minute’ Eddie Myer, Jazz Views
“In the over crowded and competitive pit of new ‘young lions’, Sam Braysher’s retro futuristic poise brings a sweet balm to sore ears…” Alex Garnett
