Jez Nelson is joined by the Matthew Shipp Trio and Phronesis to introduce contrasting approaches to the jazz piano trio.

Matthew Shipp plays with bassist Michael Bisio and drummer Whit Dickey to bring his unique brand of piano playing and avant-garde improvisation to recognisable tunes.

Phronesis – Ivo Neame (piano), Anton Eger (drums) and Jasper Høiby (bass) – champion tight grooves and free-flowing modern jazz in compositions by the band members. Both approaches are invigorating and fresh.
