Gwilym Simcock has announced that his next recording project is with the Lighthouse Trio (with Tim Garland and Asaf Sirkis), to be recorded for the ACT label in November, for later release.
The announcement came as Gwilym Simcock’s trio was performing the opening night of the 2011-12 The Base series at Kings Place on Saturday. The session recorded for transmission on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line-Up in October, and with guest Tim Garland.

The trio played mostly new material, of which a highlight was Kenny’s Way, a new tune in homage to Kenny Wheeler, involving that idea of soaring into a higher register. Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock also played a Round Midnight as a duo, in memory of Tim’s father-in-law. The sheer speed of bassist Yuri Goloubev’s fingers on a bass, and the range of effects and the sound palette he can summon up – double stops on harmonics for example –  were impressive.

The gig attracted virtually a full house, a good start to the new season of Saturday nights here at Kings Place
