Tori Freestone Trio

Tori Freestone has been creating a stir in the UK and abroad in recent years winning prestigious awards and receiving rave reviews and 2019 will see her and her trio back in action with an exciting new release on 'Whirlwind Recordings'.  Showcasing her unique writing style which takes inspiration from the chordless trios of the moment infused with sounds from her roots in folk the new release also has Latin and Brazilian elements influenced by spending much of her youth and adult life in the Canary Islands where she composed the album.  

Tori plays these compositions with the melodic yet robust approach that she has become so well known for and the trio, with her much in demand long time colleagues Tim Giles (drums) and Dave Manington (bass), has an incredible rapport and interaction that gives audiences a buzz and sense of excitement in a live setting.   Receiving rave reviews for 2014's 'In the Chophouse' resulting in a commission for the London Jazz Festival that year, the follow up 2016 release 'El Barranco' saw the trio touring Europe extensively playing Germany, Spain, Italy and Austria including some of the most prestigious European festivals.The new album has everything for the listener from hard driving and free jazz to Brazilian to folk to Cuban inspired music and brings the level of interaction from the 3 musicians to new heights.
