Is Jonathan Gee the only UK pianist simultaneously leading top draw UK, New York and Italian bands? We think so.
His current UK trio features Mikele Montolli on bass and Tristan Maillot on drums.
"A brilliant gem of contemporary piano trio." JAZZ TOKYO magazine,
"...amazing communication between players... Today, cutting-edge jazz trios require interaction between players and expect both drummer and bassist to be more than just disciples. Trio leaders such as Jason Moran, John Escreet, Matthew Shipp all write and perform their music as a three-way conversation. Add to that list, London-based pianist Jonathan Gee... The summation of this trio is in Monk's 'We See'. Gee negotiates the track as if he is taking shorthandhopping, skipping and jumping as he accelerates across the melody. It's modern, it's Monk, and it's a three-way conversation." Mark Corroto, All About Jazz,.
