Jazz Steps: Joy Ellis Trio

Available dates

Thu 5 Sep, 7:30pm

Joy Ellis is a jazz pianist, singer and composer whose long-time collaborators Henrik Jensen on double bass and drummer Adam Osmianski produce music whose compelling melodies have “an introspective north European feel; delicate, intimate – no notes are wasted in its pared-back sound” (London Jazz News).  Her stage presence is easy and engaging and performances draw on music including albums with different feels.

Of her second album Dwell, BBC Radio 3 jazz critic Kevin Le Gendre noted: ‘Fantastically wistful ambiance and beautiful voice.’  Her 2017 album Life on Land was ★★★★ rated by the Guardian who praised the “Fiery improvisations from Ellis …[and] well-structured hard-bop solos on piano and Fender Rhodes.’   Her most recent album Peaceful Place is solo piano, having a relaxed and minimalist vibe in keeping with the album’s title.

Variously reminds of Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and Bill Evans” about MOJO Magazine about album “Peaceful PlaceMOJO Magazine
