Date and Time 21 June 2024 at 19:45 Phil Robson Organ Trio

British guitar phenomenon Phil Robson hardly needs any  introduction, save that his new musical departure is realised by an  organ trio offering a smörgåsbord of exciting and imaginative  compositions. All About Jazz

Phil Robson, an award-winning, incredibly versatile and creative guitar player as well as celebrated composer, joins forces with the Hammond virtuoso Ross Stanley and the inspiring and powerful drummer Gene Calderazzo in this all-star band. The exceptional musicianship of all members is unquestionable. The  music is sensational, played with great energy and the incredible  rapport between the three members is something that definitely sets this  band apart. Influenced by such legends as Pat Martino, Wes  Montgomery and John McLaughlin, but also with a heavier rock-grooving  predilection and energy, this tight team add to the organ trio tradition  their own, refreshing touch. You will hear powerful melodies, grooves  and burning improv all melded together by the formidable blend of guitar  and Hammond, driven by Gene's dynamic drumming. Expect surprises!

Since his move from New York, US to the beautiful Irish countryside,  it is a rare treat to see Phil Robson live in the UK. Now, with this  acclaimed band, he brings some new music alongside the pieces that the  audience got to know and like, from the album “The Cut Off Point.  The band stand out in the current musical landscape with their unique  take on the great tradition of the organ trio. The band push the  envelope and take the trio format into new dimensions.

The recording was hailed as an album steeped in the jazz  language of the organ/guitar trio, a uniquely jazz format, yet one that  adds a twist all of its own and given 4 Stars by Jazzwise  magazine. Phil Robson’s compositional palette is revealed in all its  colours and the trio’s live and fiery performances leave a lasting  impression.

By turns funky, atmospheric and angular, it's consistently direct music that doesn't waste a note. Rob Adams, The Herald

This was a blast! Three superb players bringing the organ trio

into the 21st Century. Bebop Spoken Here

Phil Robson's music, on a first hearing, always gives me  that feeling I haven't yet heard right the way through it to the other  side.

Yes, there are moments of beauty, external allure, yes there is variety.

But there is also a depth which brings one back wanting to revisit, to hear more and more.... unmissable!
