The John Turville trio play original music that has a rhythmic vitality and openness while maintaining a deep lyricism and collective empathy. In February 2008 they recorded their first album ‘Midas’ in Artesuono Studio, Udine, Italy, and will release and tour this in January 2010. John Turville is an experienced composer as well as a trained classical pianist, and wrote many orchestral, chamber and piano works from an early age. He received the Ted Heath arrangers prize for a big band arrangement in 2000, and currently runs the E17 big band, which recently commissioned Liam Noble to write a suite for the E17 Jazz Festival. Having studied music at Cambridge University and London’s Guildhall, he has since toured the UK and Germany and recorded with Gilad Atzmon, and currently plays regularly with Tim Garland's Lighthouse Trio, Tim Whitehead, Guillermo Rozenthuler’s folkloric quartet ‘Rioplatenses’, Dog Soup (recently featured in Jazzwise), and the Koby Israelite Group, with which he toured the UK, Poland, Bulgaria, Portugal and Austria in 2008. John is also the pianist for many tango groups, including the Birmingham-based ‘El Ultimo Tango’ and Transtango, a multimedia project featuring Tim Garland and Eduardo Vassell. Ben Reynolds is one of the most in-demand and versatile drummers in London, currently performing with the Joe Stilgoe Trio (Candid), Jez Frank’s ‘Compassionate Dictatorship’, and the BBC award-winning band ‘Fraud’. Chris Hill is probably the busiest and most in-demand bass player in the UK. He is currently touring with Jamie Cullum, and has played for some major pop artists including Damon Albarn and Katie Melua. In the jazz world, he has appeared with the Mingus Big Band, Joe Stilgoe, Martin Taylor, Gilad Atzmon, Stacey Kent and Dylan Howe.
