Pianist Jonathan Gee brings his trio featuring Marcus Vergette on bass and Andy Trim on drums to Devon and Cornwall in July.

Known in the UK for his work with Tim Whitehead, Tony Kofi, Pharoah Sanders, and David Murray, Jonathan is involved in projects throughout Europe and recently packed out Jazz at Lincoln Centre in New York, and Rochester International Jazz Fest with his US band. In the last year or so he was invited by Mike Westbrook to play duet in The Steinway Festival at Pizza Express, Soho , toured with the great Craig Handy, and performed the complete Monk with Charles Tolliver at Cadogan Hall in London.

The trio will be playing music from his acclaimed album ‘Dragonfly’ plus some Thelonious Monk, Beatles, Rihanna, Stevie Wonder, and vocal renditions of well known standards.

Marcus, as well as being an internationally acclaimed sculptor, he has exhibited in The Venice Guggenheim for instance, has worked with many of the UK’s top jazz musicians including Mike Westbrook, Jean Toussaint, Steve Buckley and Don Weller.

Andy is one of the UK’s leading drummers, having worked with everyone from Humphrey Littleton and Pete King to Robert Mitchell, Mike Outram and Zoe Rahman. He has also worked with US legends such as Charles McPherson and Gene ‘Mighty Flea ‘ Connors and runs a legendary monthly Friday night gig at The Archduke Wine Bar in London featuring the best of London’s young lions. Robert Shaw in Jazzwise Magazine said ‘The fire and invention that marked his recent performances with Pharoah Sanders are in full evidence on this disc…his breathlessly sparkling originality shines through .’
