This is the opening concert of the 3rd GMF London Jazz Workshop and Music Festival, and it features a true giant of the piano.

Bruce Barth is without doubt one of the great jazz pianists of our time. He has been sharing his music with listeners the world over for more than two decades. Deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, his music reflects both the depth and breadth of his life and musical experiences.

He is joined tonight by ex-Jazz Messenger Jean Toussaint and long-time musical collaborator Stephen Keogh on drums.

In a recent review in the journalist Zan Stewart writes 'No one sounds quite like Barth. His solos are characterized by robust swing, his ability to tell a story, and by his rich, beguiling sound.'

After the set, the evening will continue with a jam session in which the students can participate (from 9.30pm) featuring:

Barry Green, piano
Alex Davis, bass,
Ric Yarborough, drums
