Led by freewheeling drummer Sam Jesson, Magpie Trio includes fiery tenor saxophonist George Crowley and Empirical's celebrated double bass player Tom Farmer. The trio's approach to material is described by Sam as 'creative scavenging', and they specialise in playing arrangements of music associated with the acclaimed American pianist Ahmad Jamal.
'Contemporary and spontaneous interpretations of old material, with the trio approaching their sources in a spirit of genuine affection, but still determined to leave their own stamp on the music.' ~ The Jazz Mann
