The term 'Ballad' can be interpreted many ways, but for this trio the ballad means a piece of beauty, whether it be melodic, harmonic or atmospheric. Although newly formed, these musicians have been performing together in various ensembles for the past 10 years and will focus on the intimate interactions that the trio format encourages.
They will perform pieces from influences as diverse as Lionel Loueke, Wayne Shorter, Stevie Wonder and Soundgarden as well as original compositions, with a focus on exploring and celebrating the sonic beauty of some of the more enchanting pieces written in the last century. The trio features Karl Laskowski (Mike Nock Quartet, Los Gringos), Alex Boneham (James Muller Quartet, The Vampires) and Matt Smith (Thirsty Merc, The Strides).
