“Jazz, techno, hip-hop and dubstep are glimpsed here, but for all the looping motifs and dance floor vibes, this is the work of three sure-footed improvisers with deep jazz roots” — The Guardian. Rising stars of the UK scene, Manchester’s GoGo Penguin’s brainy yet visceral sound meshes classically influenced piano with the propulsive punch of a dance floor-tinged rhythm section to thrilling results. Delirious interlocking grooves, anthemic melodies, left-field electronica, and echoes of Shostakovich; this is a vibrant young group that “pushes the piano trio format further into the future.” (JazzWise). With Chris Illingworth piano, Nick Blacka bass, and Rob Turner drums.
