Mike Nock brings his trio to Foundry616 for a programme exploring some of his favourite standards.
With Brett Hirst (bass) and new drumming star Alex Hirlian the Mike Nock Trio will explore great compositions, which are part of The Great American Song Book, from the like of George Gershwin, Billy Strayhorn and Cole Porter.
Standards have fascinated jazz musicians for decades and were a central part of the repertoire of many jazz giants at different periods in their careers. Here we can list Miles Davis, Dextor Gordon, Keith Jarrett, Lee Konitz, Sonny Rollins among the greats who played standards or turned to standards at some point.
Interpreting standards has its risks for the jazz musician. He/she has to find something new to say and avoid well-known interpretations by others. Not all manage but the ones who do, give the listener a rich and rewarding experience.
Mike Nock’s breadth of experience and constant development as an artist, gives him an authority when performing a standards programme that only the elite could match.
Foundry616 is pleased to present this special night with the Mike Nock Trio. For the lover of piano trio music and/or the standard repertoire, this is a night for you.
