When rising star Carmen Staaf ((Dee Dee Bridgewater MD) stepped in for legendary drummer Jeff Williams' usual pianist the musical connection was powerful and instantaneous. Williams who resides in both London and New York himself has an impressive CV having performed with Stan Getz, Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman and the list goes on. “We talked about the idea of a trio, after which I ran into Michael (bassist Formanek and ECM artist) - we first met in the 1970s, gigging together in New York. That was the eureka moment – it bloomed outta nowhere, hence the album title.” The threesome recorded Bloom in New York and released it on the Whirlwind Label in April 2019 garnering high praise from the jazz press - four and five star reviews and NPR ranking the album #7 on the iTunes jazz charts. This performance is part of an 8-date UK tour.
