PLAYING the Djanogly Theatre, Lakeside Arts Centre on Wednesday is Trichotomy one of Australia's most inventive contemporary music ensembles. With Sean Foran (piano), John Parker (drums) and Pat Marchisella (bass), Trichotomy has proved much more than a conventional jazz trio by expanding the capacities of the classic piano/bass/drums combination with elements of the avant-garde. Inspired by a diverse range of influences from Aphex Twin to Vijay Iyer and Tortoise to The Bad Plus, Trichotomy's music combines a dense rhythmic focus with the melodic clarity of a Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau and like fellow Australians, The Necks; cited as an early influence.
THE Theatre Royal's Foyer Bar is the scene on Monday evening for a session by the John Turville Trio. Originally from Nottingham, pianist Turville has built up a great reputation by working with Gilad Atzmon, Tim Garland, Dog Soup and aided by Chris Hill (bass) and Ben Reynolds (drums). His excellent trio will promote the music from its latest album, Conception. Reynolds is a versatile and in-demand percussionist regularly performing with Clare Teal, Joe Stilgoe and Parliamentary Award Winners, the Sam Crockatt Quartet. Hill is probably the busiest bass player in the UK. He is currently touring with Jamie Cullum and has played for some major pop artists including Damon Albarn and Katie Melua. In the jazz world, he has appeared with the Mingus Big Band, Joe Stilgoe, Martin Taylor, Gilad Atzmon, Stacey Kent and Dylan Howe.
