Biography

Born in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, pianist Peter James moved to London to study jazz at the Royal Academy of music where he met his fellow band mates Thomas Hooper (drums) and Jeremy Brown (double-bass). They released their debut album, Visions and Vistas in 2008, to critical acclaim.
Their follow up release, Soul Story came out in June 2011. Described by Jamie Cullum on Radio 2 as “highly, highly recommended” and Claire Martin on Radio 3’s Jazz Line-Up as a “stellar recording.” “The band can lay claim to a place in the top flight of piano trios” (Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz)

Peter shares something of his musical approach: “I listen to all kinds of music and the attraction of jazz has always been to me about it’s openness to real-time musical dialogue, drawing on whatever musical vocabulary there is to hand, rather than it being about a particular style in itself… It’s got to come from the moment and from the heart. In composition, I’m trying to explore the tensions between form and freedom – leaving room for the unexpected and bearing in mind the individual musicians that I write for.”
