Bebop Spoken There

Dave Holland: "Back then, one of my first gigs was with Wally Fawkes and Johnny Parker at the Crown and Anchor in Islington, playing music that went back to the days of King Oliver. And I've always enjoyed the joyousness of that music, and the sound of everybody fitting together beautifully, improvising together." - Jazzwise, August 2021.

Sam on Sunday @ The Globe


(Press release)
We can’t run gigs at The Globe currently but this WON’T STOP US bringing you the very best new music!

This Sunday 19 April at 8pm we’re delighted to be able to bring you an exclusive and intimate solo piano concert by one of the country’s finest pianists, Sam Leak, which we will stream live to you through Facebook.

Inspired by the likes of Keith Jarrett and Paul Bley, Sam has recorded a wonderful duo album with NYC pianist Dan Tepfer, as well as leading his acclaimed band Aquarium for several years. His music is richly inventive, melodic, lyrical, nuanced, and thoughtful. Really beautiful.

Sam will play for about 45 mins to 1 hour, and will be happy to take some questions about the music at the end, so both some wonderful music and some insights for you!

You can hear some of Sam’s music here, recorded live at The Vortex: https://youtu.be/VUmFWT3Gqx0
