"An un­plugged sax, double bass and drums trio might seem aus­tere, but not when it’s young drum­mer Sam Jes­son’s band. Jes­son’s Mag­pie Trio (the name im­plies cre­ative scav­engers) ex­plore the legacy of the great Ah­mad Ja­mal on this de­but tour; sax­ist Ge­orge Crow­ley and Em­pir­i­cal bassist Tom Farmer com­plete the pic­ture.” - John Fordham - Guardian
