Out now with Europe's CAMJazz (Kenny Wheeler/John Taylor/Antonio Sanchez/Enrico Pieranunzi), Tom's trio 'Treehouse' take the improvisational drive of jazz into a chamber context, creating music of dynamism and virtuosity with a unique sonic identity. The group launched their debut CD at the 2015 London Jazz Festival.
“An exciting trio with a special sound and understanding. There’s a real vitality and rapport in the group and the compositions are sublime, with Tom’s beautiful, adventurous piano playing throughout. ” John Taylor
“Emerging piano virtuoso Hewson…displays great maturity here in this drum-less trio, with stunning Empirical vibes master Lewis Wright and bassist Calum Gourlay…impressive, free flowing solos – think a twentysomething take on the MJQ.” TimeOut
“This music has a way of steering in and out of what one imagines is familiar territory, with nods to everyone from John Taylor to Stravinsky, Steve Reich to Jimmy Giuffre, put together with loads of humour and intelligence. Most importantly, though, it just sounds great!” Liam Noble
