Garland, Simcock and Sirkis explore every conceivable possibility of this trio. An orchestra on a small scale that combines complexity and groove, skilfully interlocking many things and acting with astonishing effortlessness. Striking melodies and rhythmic borrowings from the Celtic heritage, but also elements from the most diverse regions of the world merge into a sound that is unmistakably their own.

Gwilym Simcock
Chick Corea calls him an "original, a creative genius," and Jamie Cullum, a star of the British music scene, declares him "our best young pianist": Born in 1981 and residing in London, Welsh pianist Gwilym Simcock undoubtedly ranks among the forefront of European jazz. Simcock made his breakthrough in 2011 with his solo piano recording, "Good Days at Schloss Elmau." His ACT debut was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize, the UK's most important cross-genre music award, making Simcock one of the 12 best albums in the UK, alongside world-renowned artists like Adele.
