Evelyn Glennie and Trio HLK

Evelyn Glennie and Trio HLK

Details

Pioneering solo percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie plays with Trio HLK. The Scottish improvising ensemble comprises Richard Harrold (piano and composer), Ant Law (guitar) and Richard Kass (drums).

Their music pulls apart jazz standards into fragments that are at times shimmering and cerebral, at others thunderous and visceral. Intricate and harmonious rhythms meet with a veritable battery of percussion instruments played by Glennie to deliver a performance that is an interactive tour de force.

> ★★★★
> “Glennie, hemmed in by a veritable stockade of vibes, marimba, tympani and assorted percussive gewgaws, emerged for a solo spot, hands flickering in an urgently driven piece for steel handpan and prepared tape, and to spar energetically on a separate drum kit with Kass in a number which concluded with a formidable break from the HLK drummer.”
