Doors open 19:30 Performance starts 20:00


We welcome this Australian piano trio as part of their European tour. Sean Foran’s Trichotomy release their latest album ‘Known-Unknown. They are one of the most exciting trios in contemorporay jazz combining the lyricism of EST and the energy levels of The Bad Plus, whilst finding their own melodic voice.  


The Guardian

"These three make the resources of the conventional piano trio go a long way. – 4 stars”


MOJO Magazine

“delightfully detailed ensembles, full of wit and vigour…they bamboozle with tricky time-signatures and intricate themes”


BBC Music Magazine

"this is a genuine trio, with three equally important parts, and they never put a foot or finger wrong" 5 stars!


All About Jazz

“one of the most exciting trios in contemporary music”.

Mammal Hands @ RIVERSIDE

Wed 22 February 2017

20:00 £12 (£6 Students)

NEW VENUE: Riverside Tiddington


Doors open 19:30 Performance starts 20:00


Nick Smart piano, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, Jordan Smart saxophones


A bassless trio. Mammal Hands have a unique take on the classic lineup and also offer a different perspective to the jazz scene. Whilst Saxophonist Jordan Smart explores the amalgamation of John Coltrane, Pharaoh Saunders and DJ culture, his brother, pianist Nick Smart lays down jazz harmonies with attracts of Terry Riley esque minimalism. Drafting in Tabla trained drummer Jesse Barrett, this group has an amazing mix of contemporary styles that offers depth but also true accessibility.
