Pianist Graham Harvey leads his trio featuring Dutch drummer Sebastiaan de Krom (Jamie Cullum) and double bassist Dave Chamberlain (Stacey Kent) on the final stop of their recent UK tour. The trio have been together for the past 20 years and have developed a close musical rapport, playing original arrangements of jazz standards in the mold of the swinging Ray Brown trios of the 1990s. The gig will be recorded as part of his forthcoming new album featuring original arrangements.

Graham initially started off as a classical pianist, before moving to the USA to study jazz, later returning to the UK to become director of jazz/funk outfit Incognito, before beginning an ongoing stint as pianist for Grammy nominated singer Stacey Kent. He's also performed with Stevie Wonder, recorded with George Benson and played with Clark Terry and Warren Vache.

While studying in Italy, Sebastiaan de Krom won a scholarship to study in the United States, while he was there won the Buddy Rich Award in 1995 and later became resident drummer at the famous Thelonious Monk Institute for two years. He has performed with Herbie Hancock and John Scofield. Dave Chamberlain studied in London and Paris, under the tutelage of Pierre Boussaguet, an alumnus of Ray Brown. He spent time with Graham in Stacey Kent's band, and now plays with the Back To Basie Orchestra. He has performed with Mark Murphy, Bob Dorough, Curtis Stigers, the Halle Orchestra, and the CBSO, among others.
