Emily Francis Trio

Live at Magy's Farm sessions

Magy's Farm are proud to present Emily Francis Trio, live in session.

About the session

Well we knew this was going to be good because our man, drummer Jamie Murray, who floored us with his performance as part of the Michael Janisch Quintet, was back at the helm. The Emily Francis Trio...comprising Emily Francis on keys and electronics, her partner Trevor Boxall on bass and the most exciting young drummer in the UK today, Jamie Murray, provided us with a new experience at Magy's Farm, with a funk and fusion-driven set with heady locked-in drum patterns and outrageous solos.

Boxall and Murray provided the perfect foundation for Francis to weave her raucous lines through a tapestry of grooves and chords with a wide bandwidth. Melodies were strong and moved around, Francis' keyboard parts percussive and angular, Boxall's bass lines hooky and accurate and Murray's open approach to hardline grooves and intense improvisations had the audience baying for more...and more...what a gig!
