The Elliott Sansom Trio
My Trio is my main and most current writing project, consisting of Ben Murihead on the double bass and Nathan England Jones on the drums. I have been writing original music inspired my some of my favourite composers such as John Taylor, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and Paul Bley.
I have also been experimenting with taking some of my favourite classical peices such as Frederic Mompou's 'Musica Callda' short peices for piano and playing and improvising with them in a jazz context.
As well as this we also play and explore the tradition by playing standards and arrangements of standards often playing in the house band for sessions.
Projects as a sideman.

The recording studio will be run as a commercial and personal studio space. it consists of a very spacious and comftorble live room, a reasonably sized contol room and a waiting area.
