JACKSON HARRISON TRIO:
Jackson Harrison returns this August to Foundry616 with his new trio after an exciting night of music in March of this year. Jackson is again joined by long-standing drummer James Waples and the award-winning bassist Jacques Emery. Described by John Shand in the Sydney Morning Herald as having “a gorgeous touch at the piano and an ability to combine intense lyricism with knotty interaction”, Jackson has toured with his trio in China and in Europe and has released two trio albums on the prestigious Swiss-based record label HatHut Records. Jackson’s most recent trio album Sintering was recorded in Sydney with James Waples and Ben Waples. His earlier trio album Land Tides was recorded in New York with Thomas Morgan and Dan Weiss.

“The Jackson Harrison Trio paints pictures of astonishing abstract art…splashing fiery colors onto backgrounds that are often stark but always stunning”
