JN team in London last night at the Help Musicians UK 25th anniversary celebration for the #PeterWhittinghamJazz award. The night was particularly special for us as Leeds’ band Stretch Trio were on the bill and to make their London debut alongside Soweto Kinch and Patchwork Jazz Orchestra.
Stretch Trio have really developed a unique sound since winning Jazz North Introduces in 2013. They went onto win the #PeterWhittinghamJazz award in 2014. The band are currently working on a new album with producer and fellow PWJA alumni Pete Wareham.
Stretch Trio are Andy French (Sax and EWI), Calvin Travers (Guitar) and Tom Higham (Drums).
A band to watch out for!
