Burghausen Jazz Award

Posted: March 30, 2014 in Uncategorized

I just got back from a trip to Germany with the Elliot Galvin Trio, and am delighted that we were awarded the Burghausen Young European Jazz Award! As part of the prize, we opened the Jazz Festival with a 90 minute set in a double bill with Jamie Cullum’s band. It was all a whirlwind and a blast! Read more about it here (if you speak German)…


The show will be broadcast on German national TV in September.

Thanks to Seb Scotney and LondonJazzNews for letting us know about the competition!

The track ISM by the Elliot Galvin Trio was played on the radio last night. It’s from our debut album Dreamland. Click on the image below to listen to Jez Nelson’s Jazz on 3 on BBC Radio 3.

Jez Nelson said:

“Perhaps one of the strongest debuts that I’ve heard from a UK artist in a long while. That’s the piano player Elliot Galvin. He has a new album out called Dreamland. It’s a very varied album and I have to say, for a first recording, it’s extremely bold and progressive.”

Thanks Jez, we love you!

The adrenaline from recording Elliot Galvin’s debut trio album ‘Dreamland’ is starting to wear off now. Huge thanks to the incredible Philip and George at Eastcote Studios and to Laura Jurd for producing. What a joy to play with Elliot Galvin and Tom McCredie! So excited to hear the finished disc and to see Stuart Brough’s artwork for the album!
