Phil Meadows Group
Laura Jurd (Tpt) - Elliot Galvin (Pno) - Conor Chaplin (bs) - Simon Roth (dms)
Having recently released his debut album, saxophonist and composer Phil Meadows takes joy in capturing snapshots of situations that have triggered personal ‘Engines of Creation’. From tales of cartoonish characters and trivial battles, to marking pivotal situations, arrivals and departures – Meadows’ clever episodic writing balances an eclectic range of contemporary influences, strong improvisational language, and wit. Combining soaring melodies, a collection of grooves and elements of the avant-garde the group showcases players from an important new wave of rising British talent, featuring acclaimed trumpeter Laura Jurd, pianist Elliot Galvin, bassist Conor Chaplin and drummer Simon Roth.
