Justin Kauflin Trio + Airelle Besson & Vincent Segal

LONDON Wigmore Hall
36 Wigmore Street

A double bill highlighting emerging talent from both sides of the Atlantic

The prodigiously gifted pianist Justin Kauflin, mentored by jazz masters Clark Terry and Quincy Jones, is one of a massively talented clutch of young musicians in the Quincy Jones stable, who embraces the spirit of jazz piano masters – Bud Powell, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Dave Brubeck – whilst following his own soulfully expressive muse. ‘He’s a monster on the piano! And  one of the greatest people I know’ (Clark Terry)

Paired with the UK debut of the duo of French trumpeter Airelle Besson and cellist Vincent Segal - at the heart of Airelle’s music is a lustrous, lyrical trumpet sound that weaves around Vincent Segal’s mesmerising cello lines.
