An exciting week for The Stretch Trio as they prepare to launch their debut album at The Hepworth, Wakefield. Since being selected as for the Jazz North Introduces scheme the band have performed at The Gateshead International Jazz Festival and The Scarborough Jazz Festival. They also received mentoring from Manchester-based guitarist / composer Mike Walker.
Dennis Rollin’s watched them perform at Scarborough and he says:
“Stretch Trio” do just that! No ordinary guitar trio, they sonically push the envelope of the traditional jazz sound incorporating today’s contemporary technology. Definitely one to watch!”
During the summer they recorded their debut album which will be available in physical form or via download from band camp.
Stretch Trio album launch at The Hepworth, Wakefield, 20 November 8pm Free Entry (joint promotion with The Yorkshire Live Music Project)
