Gwilym Simcock Piano Tim Garland Reeds Asaf Sirkis Percussion
Brighton Jazz Club are delighted to be collaborating with Basho Records in presenting some of their most high profile performers, who begin a series of European dates with this Brighton gig. Celebrating their signing to the prestigious German label ACT, the hugely successful Lighthouse are back with their original personnel after two years working on other projects.
The newly invigorated trio punch deep into exciting groove-based tunes, inspired Celtic rhythms and an eclectic mix of Chick Corea, Bill Bruford, Yellowjackets, John Coltrane, and DJ Carl Cox.
Grammy winner Tim Garland and Barclaycard Mercury nominated pianist Gwilym Simcock are two of the most outstanding composers of our time in both jazz and classical genres, and are regarded as among the very best in the world on their respective instruments.
With Asaf Sirkis playing a custom-built percussion set of frame drums, bass Udu, Hang drum and more, Lighthouse exude a very special energy and excitement in performance.
