MJC Presents: Haywood/Ball/Ferella with Dorian Ford (London)

London-based pianist/composer Dorian Ford came up playing alongside many musicians who went on to form the backbone of the London jazz renaissance of the 1980s.

Through a scholarship he went to the USA and became a Berklee graduate and Chick Corea Jazz Masters award winner. His unique and personal playing style takes in jazz, classical, folk and rock, and he often makes the crossover between jazz and classical audiences, especially with his Bill Evans tributes. He has worked on film scores, and toured Europe and Japan, as well as performing a solo piano concert at the London Jazz Festival.

On his Melbourne debut he will collaborate with Eugene Ball (trumpet), Nick Haywood (bass) and Ronny Ferella (drums).

“an incandescent piano trio.” John Fordham, The Guardian

“Dorian Ford is some kind of genius.  An assured and intelligent improviser, his interpretation of Gershwin’s 'Embraceable You' managed to invoke both the spirit of Charlie Parker and the slow movement of Bach’s Italian Concerto.  A really musical performance.”  Hugh Wood
