Andrew McCormack is a composer and pianist who is realising the best work of his career, thus far. Since bursting on to the scene in 2007 with his debut album, Telescope, McCormack has been the driving force behind A-list jazz artists Kyle Eastwood, Eric Alexander, Denys Baptiste and Jean Toussaint, as well as a host of home grown talent, including Jamie Cullum and Jason Yarde.
He has been performing extensively around the world, and selected the UK as the starting point in support of his critically acclaimed latest album, First Light.
The new trio album, written and recorded in Brooklyn, New York, represents perhaps McCormack’s greatest achievement to date in his composition and performance--recognised as such by critics, musicians and the public--placing him comfortably and confidently on a worldwide stage.
Developing and honing a skilfully original approach to writing and performance in the jazz tradition, McCormack has captivated audiences with his emotional and expressive style--combined with a yearning, emotive aesthetic--which might be best described as quintessentially British.
His move to New York has added an even greater sense of swing, dynamic group interplay and a mesmeric live sound. The result is a world-class pianist and formidable composer, who has arguably earned a seat at the top of the jazz trio talent roster, anywhere around the globe.
