The Dominic Alldis Trio explores the meeting point of two worlds: classical music and jazz. Taking inspiration from the Jacques Loussier Trio, Bill Evans Trio, Dave Brubeck Quartet and the Modern Jazz Quartet, the trio brings a fresh and contemporary approach to famous themes from classical music, opera, and folk songs. Their concerts appeal to both classical and jazz audiences who enjoy chamber music, jazz and the timeless art of improvisation.
