Marilyn Crispell, Eddie Prévost & Harrison Smith
One of today’s finest modern jazz pianists, Marilyn Crispell has produced a stunning body of work for the ECM label. She came to prominence performing free jazz in the 1980s as a member of the Anthony Braxton Quartet, Reggie Workman Ensemble, Barry Guy New Orchestra and London Jazz Composers Orchestra where she first worked with saxophonist Harrison Smith and drummer Eddie Prévost. Performing as a trio for the first time, the three musicians travel on highly inventive journeys exploring a wide array of emotions and musical colours. Only UK date outside London. "For two decades, Marilyn Crispell has been one of the most highly regarded pianists at the sharp end of contemporary jazz." John Fordham, The Guardian "Hearing Marilyn Crispell play solo piano is like monitoring an active volcano. She is one of a very few pianists who rise to the challenge of free jazz." Jon Pareles, New York Times
