Pianist Sultan Stevenson is one of the fastest emerging young artists on the London jazz scene and his trio is already established as an outfit to catch when billed to play live and is being tipped for success on national and international stages.
'Faithful One' features Sultan's band with Jacob Gryn (double bass), Joel Waters (drums), Josh Short (trumpet) and special guest Denys Baptiste on tenor saxophone.
His approach to composition and playing has already been compared to that of McCoy Tyner and EsbjÃ¶rn Svensson and, over the past year, his trio has played standout gigs at Jazz re:freshed, the Vortex and the Jazz CafÃ© where the band opened for the great Billy Cobham. Their Pizza Express gig during the EFG London Jazz Festival was a sell-out.
"His way of placing silences and making a simple four-note lick grow into something significant showed an incipient master at work."- The Telegraph
