Video: Ellery Eskelin, Drew Gress and Gerald Cleaver

13 September 2016

Here is a fantastic video of Ellery playing with Drew Gress and Gerald Cleaver.

Both Gress and Cleaver are incredible musicians in their own right, with many recordings as leader and sidemen under their belt, so this meeting of minds with Eskelin is something very special.  The sense of swing and joy these three masters bring to this completely improvised performance is absolutely astounding.

Just one week to go until Ellery Eskelin hits the UK for his Orpheus Tour!
