Gwilym Simcock is busy….He will be giving the London premiere of his choral commission “I Prefer the Gorgeous Freedom” this Saturday 21st in the Queen Elizabeth Hall at 2pm. It had a very well-received first performance in the Norwich and Norfolk Festival in May.
His trio, with Yuri Goloubev on bass and James Maddren on drums has a Pizza Express Dean Street residency from November 27th (date of the new CD launch of “Blues Vignette”) until December 3rd. There are (increasingly rare) London appearances in this residency by, eg, saxophonist Julian Arguelles and by trumpeter Gerard Presencer, and by Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel.
