Local Music Spotlight

Mill Hill Jazz Club Special
Dorian Ford

Once again Dorian shows his class...

Dorian Ford started playing jazz in his early teens when he began regular attendance at a weekly workshop led by trumpeter, composer, broadcaster and music writer Ian Carr.
Playing alongside many musicians who went on to form the backbone of the London jazz renaissance of the 1980's, he won a scholarship to Berklee College of Music where he received the prestigious Chick Corea Jazz Masters Award. Piano studies were with Donald Brown, a regular in Art Blakey's band at the time.
The new "Without Words" Trio features Dorian Ford - piano, Dominic Ashworth - guitar, Lydian B. Dhami - double bass and pays tribute to the great piano/guitar collaborations (Jamal/Crawford, Metheny/Mays, Evans/Hall, Peterson/Ellis, Pass and Kessel, Jarrett/Brown and Miller/Malone, Without Words play originals, standards, classics by the mordern greats and pop standards. They aim to communicate warmth of feeling, intimacy, lyricism and swing, and all without words - only music.
