QOW TRIO is a unique multi-generational band featuring young firebrand saxophonist Riley Stone Lonergan, British Jazz legend Spike Wells (Tubby Hayes, Bobby Wellins) on drums, and multi-genre bassist and bandleader Eddie Myer.
The trio initially got together through their mutual love of Sonny Rollins' classic piano-less trios of the 1950s but soon found themselves expanding their repertoire to explore the rich and varied territory laid out by the great tradition of big-toned tenor players over the generations.
The album was released on Ubuntu Music to excellent reviews in national press and has been played on JazzFm and BBC Radio 3, and extensively playlisted on Spotify.
Sales have been brisk and feedback from a wide range of audiences has been very positive.
Engagements since 2020 included PIzza Express Jazz Club, The Vortex, The 606 Club, Love Supreme Festival, Rye Jazz Festival, The Brighton Jazz Festival and a tour of Ireland.
They have begun 2023 with a headline billing at Jazz In The Round in the Marylebone Cockpit Theatre.
The trio are currently putting the finishing touches to their 2nd album and the hope is to tour throughout the UK and Europe in 2023/24.
‘The level of interaction between the three musicians involved in this fluid, chordless instrumental line up is exceptional.’
‘Just remember to play it loud and don’t worry what the neighbours think!’
