Ronnie Scott’s are very proud to launch the International Piano Trio Festival. Set to be a brand new edition to the UK’s thriving jazz festival scene it shines a light on one of the most vibrant aspects of the international jazz scene– the piano trio. From the days of Art Tatum through to Bill Evans, EST and the Bad Plus, the piano trio has always been at the forefront of new developments in jazz. The Ronnie Scott’s International Piano Trio Festival celebrates the piano trio in all its many forms, presenting many of the finest piano trios from around the world, from jazz legends to rising stars.
The International Piano Trio Festival provides another brilliant double-bill, juxtaposing the sublime Anglo-Scandinavian contemporary jazz trio Phronesis with the superlative young Cuban pianist, Lopez-Nussa whose highly percussive, but always melodic playing draws on the rich sounds of Havana and Cuba as well as contemporary modern jazz. Yasser Pino on bass and Ruy A Lopez-Nussa on drums.
