Plot Synopsis:

Making their debut appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival on July 11, The Neil Cowley Trio are virtuoso musicians. Cowley is a consummate live performer with a distinctively English wit and the ability to create a marvelous rapport with his audience, as ably demonstrated on Live At Montreux 2012. The show focuses primarily on their latest album The Face Of Mount Molehill (recorded & later toured with a string ensemble), with a scattering of tracks from their previous releases.

Neil Cowley is a much in demand pianist who cut his teeth on albums by the likes of Brand New Heavies and Zero 7, and more recently played piano on both of Adele's global bestselling albums 19 and 2, making him quite literally, the most listened to pianist on the planet.

Defined by powerful riffs countered by poignant, delicate passages and witty, whimsical romps, Cowley's jazz-meets-rock ethic has earned his trio worldwide acclaim, and plaudits from across the musical spectrum. Their debut album Displaced won the 2007 BBC Jazz Award for Best Album and the trio undertook their first UK tour in the same year, going on to perform extensively around the globe, appearing at some of the worlds most prestigious jazz festivals alongside a string of triumphant shows in the US in 2012. Heralded as "strong stirring stuff" by Time Out New York, their most recent recording, The Face of Mount Molehill earned the trio Best UK Jazz Act at the inaugural Jazz Fm Awards.

The line-up on Live At Montreux includes The Trio: Neil Cowley (piano); Rex Horan (bass); Evan Jenkins (drums), with Julian Ferraretto (violin); Helen Sanders-Hewett (viola); Alex Eichenberger (cello); Miles Brett (violin).
