“For my money, London-born Gabriel Latchin is the best straight-ahead jazz pianist to appear in the past few years… I’ll Be Home for Christmas – the gift that keeps on giving” Dave Gelly, The Observer ★★★★

Chase away the winter chill with an evening of music from the latest album from the Gabriel Latchin Trio. I’ll Be Home for Christmas a heart-warming collection of seasonal favourites, expect new arrangements of classic favourites as Latchin delivers his signature straight-ahead style.

This truly is a seasonal feast for jazz fans!

The Gabriel Latchin Trio is now a major highlight on the UK jazz scene, with Latchin’s playing taking inspiration from Bill Evans, Oscar Peterson and Herbie Hancock. His international presence is growing fast with 15 million streams online to date. This evening’s performance features the long-standing rhythm section of Josh Morrison on drums and Dario Di Lecce on bass. The trio showcased this set on a sell-out show last Christmas at Pizza Express, London and we’re delighted to welcome them to Guildford this year!
