The Sam Leak Trio perform contemporary jazz with a gospel-tinged, and folk-inspired, freedom and abandon. Conjuring up the joy and emotion typified by Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett's 1960s trios, the ensemble maintains a sense of the tradition whilst performing music that is very much rooted in the present. Featuring Simon Read on double bass, and Will Glaser on drums, the band perform a mixture of Leak's compositions and some lesser played compositions from their favourite musicians. In 2016/17 the trio toured the UK, playing in Birmingham, Fishguard, Southampton, Leeds and elsewhere. A high point of this tour was a performance at Ronnie Scotts' prestigious International Piano Trio Festival. The trio are currently showcasing Leak's composition 'Adrift,' recorded for Jellymould Jazz in duet with Dan Tepfer - described by Marcus O'Dair as 'astonishing.'
