A modern and refreshing take on the classic piano trio model, with swinging tunes and hip arrangements from the likes of Horace Silver, Chick Corea, Cedar Walton and more. The trio draws influences from both the old and new with their own fresh take on a large variety of standards.

Swinging jazz, interaction, heavy improvisation, good mic chat, a wide range of moods and styles.

“Cleasby hits all the pots and pans – if his mask hadn’t slipped I’d have sworn it was Elvin Jones reincarnated.” – Bebopspokenhere

Will Cleasby is a jazz drummer and a member of two of the most revered outfits on London’s Jazz Scene today-The Banger Factory and Kansas Smitty’s House Band. Recipient of the highest honours from Trinity Laban Conservatoire, where he received his bettering from the likes of Gene Calderazzo and Dave Wickens. Will has performed at premier London venues, Ronnie Scott’s, Vortex and Jazz Cafe, as well as internationally renowned festivals such as Love Supreme, North Sea Jazz Festival, Cork Jazz Festival with Grammy award winning singer Kurt Elling and the Rochester International Jazz Festival. Will is a true tour de force, severely ferocious, undeniably conspicuous and spectacular. The room will come to a standstill during his solo sections, followed by standing, maniacal applore. A pure delight to watch. Ecstatic. 

The Three Willis come whole with Will Barry on the piano and Will Sach on Double Bass. Tonight’s programme will comprise a selection of their favourite tunes and old standards with an exciting, unpredictable and modern spin.
