Led by pianist and composer Tom Cawley and featuring bassist Sam Burgess and drummer Joshua Blackmore, CURIOS just get better and better. Winner of ‘Best Band’ at the last BBC Jazz Awards, they are a trio in their prime. With several years together and two acclaimed albums under their belt already, they share an empathy and collective insight that makes them one of the most brilliant piano trios in the world. Impure, their third album, and debut for Edition Records, marks the next leap forward in a remarkable creative journey that shows no sign of slowing.

If 2008‘s Closer was noted for its intricate intimacy and florid romanticism then Impure engages fully with the trio’s extraordinary live performances. Cawley has opened up the music to fully explore the group’s collective potency. There is an even greater sense of the trio as a living, breathing entity; three distinct voices merged in one song, engaged in a shared exploration of the spaces within and around Cawley’s distinctive compositions.

While the music retains it’s dramatic quality there is a more mediative feel to their creative excavations driven by Cawley’s expressive, beautiful playing and the sublimely empathetic contribution of Burgess and Blackmore. Furthermore Cawley’s subtle use of a Loop Station both as a texture and as a device to compose around adds a fresh voice to the trio’s sonic palate. All music by Tom Cawley
