Dominic Alldis Trio
 The ‘Jazz Meets Classical’ concert given by the Dominic Alldis Trio was fantastic. It gave me a totally new and fresh perspective on classical pieces I have been listening to for years...  David McCleery, Artistic Director, St. James’s Piccadilly

The Programme:

The trio will play a selection of their own jazz arrangements of music by Bach, Fauré, Ravel, Satie, Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, Bizet, Bartok and Chopin, as well as the music of Michel Legrand, Dave Brubeck, John Lewis and Jacques Loussier.

The Dominic Alldis Trio explores the meeting point between two musical worlds: classical and jazz. Taking inspiration from the Jacques Loussier Trio, Modern Jazz Quartet, Dave Brubeck Quartet and the Bill Evans Trio, the Dominic Alldis Trio brings a fresh and contemporary approach to famous themes from classical music and opera. Their concerts appeal to both classical and jazz audiences who appreciate the timeless art of improvisation and are broadly familiar with famous themes by Bach, Handel, Fauré, Satie, Bizet, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky and Chopin.
