Event 39 Venue: Brecon Cathedral

Meadow comprises three of Europe’s finest and most sensitive players, the UK’s John Taylor on piano and Norwegians Thomas Stronen on drums and Tore Brunborg on saxes. Their recent release Blissful Ignorance is an impressive album; released on the Welsh label Edition, it has received much critical acclaim, confidently predicting the album as a modern classic. Minimalist and hypnotic, their music has the wisdom, honesty and vigour that is born only of experience. Blissful Ignorance – these guys have it sussed! 

‘This remarkable trio has produced one of 2011’s likely jazz triumphs.’ John Fordham, The Guardian
