You’ll be dying to brighten up your winter with I’ll Be Home For Christmas. Join us on Tuesday 15th of December 2020.
‘Pianist Gabriel Latchin makes playing jazz sound easy. That’s “easy” as in “enviably relaxed” - Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal.
With over 9million streams on Spotify with his second album, The Moon and I, released back in 2019, you’ll feel like you’re swinging down the WestSide of New York City when you give it a listen here. The British born jazz maestro; is certainly grabbing the world’s attention.
Enamoured with the “timeless quality” of a jazz trio, Gabriel and his band have been taking the UK jazz scene by storm, since the release of the first album, back in 2017. His achievements as a composer have been widely recognised, penning songs for his beloved family, taking you on a journey to where his heart lies in The Moon and I. With the latest album, you can feel a similar heart given to jazz greats as he imagines how Bill Evans would play, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, Ahmad Jamal “Rudolph”, and Monk treating you to “Santa Baby”.
As I’m sure most of will all be home for Christmas, why don’t you treat yourself to a festive wonder that is the Gabriel Latchin Trio; here with us, at Toulouse for the 2020 launch of I’ll Be Home For Christmas. We’ll provide the wine you provide the cheer! Book your tickets now:
