The English musician Tom Cawley and his band Curios
have been operating on the music scene since 2007. This pianist and composer is an ingenious innovator. When he and Curios released their debut CD Hidden
, the English jazz scene was very excited. According to the newspapers and magazines, Cawleys trio moves on where The Bad Plus and Brad Mehldau come to a halt. This is mainly because Cawley as a composer finds his inspiration just as easily in classical music as in jazz. He has written pieces for string quartets as wellas for big bands. In England, Cawley, who is now 32, is very, very famous. At the moment he is a professor at the prestigious RoyalAcademy of Music.
