Live Album On Sale Now https://samjessonmusic.bandcamp.com/releases
Following an extensive tour in 2019, our 2020 tour was unfortunately cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re currently putting together a European tour for 2021, before then you can hear us via our album Magpie Trio: Live, available via my Bandcamp site.
“An unplugged sax, double bass and drums trio might seem austere, but not when it’s young drummer Sam Jesson’s band. Jesson’s Magpie Trio (the name implies creative scavengers) explore the legacy of the great Ahmad Jamal on this debut tour; saxist George Crowley and Empirical bassist Tom Farmer complete the picture.” – John Fordham – Guardian
“I really enjoyed their two sets, particularly the inventiveness that went into their interpretations of that material…There was throughout a freshness in the trio’s music that was very impressive.” – Tony Dudley-Evans
“Devoted young originals including drummer Sam Jesson and saxophonist George Crowley … simultaneously cherished where jazz has been, and relished where it might be headed” John Fordham – The Guardian
