Following high-profile collaborations with saxophone giants Greg Osby, Jean Toussaint and Tommy Smith, he has assembled an exciting trio which features the mammoth talents of British alto saxophone/rap star Soweto Kinch and Australian bassist Damian Evans.

Kinch’s successful fusion of straight-ahead jazz and hip hop has led to two MOBO awards, three BBC Jazz Awards and a nomination for the Mercury Music Prize. Based in Ireland since the lae-nineties, Australian bassist Damian Evans has worked with US players such as Bill Carrothers and Jonathan Kreisberg, as well as leading Irish musicians Louis Stewart and Honor Heffernan.
