The RBG Trio – Live at The London Jazz Festival 2024

London, United Kingdom

The Vortex

8:00 PM

The RBG Trio will make their welcome to return to the London Jazz Festival performing at The Vortex.

Formed in 2019, The RBG Trio is a collective of three of Ireland’s leading jazz artists – Meilana Gillard (tenor saxophone), Dave Redmond (bass), and Kevin Brady (drums).Renowned for their tight interplay and incredible storytelling, the band have  carved out a ‘must see’ reputation. With blues always in their foundation, this groups sound ranges from pre- to post-bop, soulful to grunge, free to swinging.

Drawing from repertoire of the traditional saxophone trio canons of Sonny Rollins and Joe Henderson, to more contemporary and improvised output. It is an approach where free-form exploration rubs shoulders with reimagined music from the likes of Nirvana and Soundgarden. Ultimately, nothing is off limits. This is a band led by tunes – mainstream or lesser known, self-penned or reinterpreted, traditional or contemporary. If it works, it works.

Additionally, each member of The RBG Trio composes for the band, which lends to the trio’s diverse output and constant surprise.
