Manchester’s acoustic trio Skutch Manos combine demonic Spanish guitar with restlessly driving double bass and unrelenting drum and percussion beats. It’s a remarkable high-energy instrumental dervish jazz that’s big on thrills. Their well embellished compositions are an adventurous musical experience that paint a broad, diverse and always shifting wall of sound.
Barrelhouse Trio met at Leeds College Of Music and first played together due to a mutual love of the Sonny Rollins trio of the 50s/60s.
Using tunes from the great American song book, standards and contrafacts the trio aims to play with the same level of creativity and swing that has come before.
