Huw V Williams Trio: George Crowley (saxophone), Huw V Williams (bass), Devin Gray (drums)
Bass player Huw V Williams, a Londoner by way of Bangor, North Wales is one of the most exciting new arrivals on the jazz and improvised music scene in the last five years. Huw has been associated with the best practitioners of the international avant-garde music scene including Jim Black, Huw Warren, Jeff Williams and Ivo Neame. He has also collaborated with the contemporary generation including Laura Jurd and Elliot Galvin.
Huw is a prolific composer and band leader. Most recently he has used varied techniques such as collective improvisation to compose specifically for his trio with prestigious London saxophonist George Crowley and rising New Yorker Devin Gray on drums.
Since moving to London in 2013, Williams has been an exciting presence in the city’s progressive jazz scene. He brought his unique intensity on the double bass to projects such as the Michael De Souza Trio, Alam Nathoo’s Cerberus Distracted and Ivo Neame’s Quintet.
“If you’re looking for a statement of all the most exciting features of British instrumental jazz, this is the place to start” – Matthew Wright (The Arts Desk)
