Album Of The Week: Elliot Galvin Trio - Punch

Following 2014’s highly acclaimed debut album Dreamland, Elliot Galvin Trio return with a new record. With accolades and praise heaped on them from winning the European Young Jazz Artist of the Year Award. Plus German magazine ‘JazzThing’ named Dreamland as their album of the year. The Guardian called it “audaciously accomplished” and DJ Jez Nelson said it was “Perhaps one of the strongest debuts that I’ve heard from a UK artist in a long while.” The bands’ second album is everything we’d hope for and more.

Working with Tom McCredie (Double Bass) and Simon Roth (Drums) Galvin creates a unique soundscape all with a sense of adventure which is fast becoming his trademark. The result is an album of forward-thinking compositions that combines a broad range of influences into Galvin’s unique musical vision.

Make sure to listen to recent single “Blop,” “Tipu’s Tiger,” “Lions” and an ominous cover of “Mack The Knife” which effectively showcase the scope of sounds that the trio captures in the collection.

This dazzling album is going to keep us entertained for years to come.
