The Grey Wing Trio

Young jazz-improvisation band, the Grey Wing Trio, has been carving out a reputation for its distinctly melodic, rapturous sound and adventurous performing.

With a nod to classical music traditions as much as to jazz, their style is epic and sweeping. Featuring the very talented line-up of Luke Sweeting on piano (Freedman Jazz finalist), Ken Allars on trumpet (James Morrison scholarship winner) and Finn Ryan on drums, their original compositions move from moments of expansive minimalism to hyper-lyrical impressionism. Glassy, water-like piano bells, flute-like horn timbres and small percussive textures flow in and out of their music.

For this very special appearance for Trinity’s Society of the Arts, the trio will be drawing on their acclaimed release “Amoroso”, improvising on their compositions to explore alternate forms and endings, with revelations of in-the-moment colours. Not to be missed!

“Themes emerge, then evaporate into floating motifs. Realities form and dissolve as if mirages. What remains is deep evanescent beauty.” – John Fenton on Amoroso by Grey Wing Trio
