Neil Cowley Trio unveil 'Kneel Down' video and Touch And Flee tour dates

Neil Cowley Trio today announces dates for their forthcoming tour spanning ten concert halls this autumn. The trio take to the road presenting music from their fifth studio album, Touch and Flee, released June 9th June on Naim Jazz Records. 

Today also sees the unveiling of the first video taken from Touch and Flee.  Filmed at RAK studios, Kneel Down is a haunting, compelling three-movement piece whose pulse, power and sweeping majesty sheds light on the new direction of the band.

Touch and Flee marks a defining moment in the evolution of Neil Cowley Trio.  It is their bravest, most daring album to date, spotlighting the ever- increasing brilliance of Cowley as a composer.   With long time band mates, Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass, they present more expansive melodies and longer elegant passages for what they describe as “our concert hall record”.   As always though, Cowley’s power to move through music is on full display.  Here are a collection of tunes best savoured in a darkened room at full volume. They demand attention, but as always, deliver to the listener the most blissful of rides. 

'Kneel Down' is available to download instantly when pre-ordering Touch and Flee from  iTunes.  Touch and Flee is released on 9th June 2014 on Naim Jazz Records (naimcd206) 

Neil Cowley Trio tour in the autumn Presenting new music from Touch and Flee alongside Cowley classics.  Expect a captivating show of high drama and playfulness that demonstrate exactly why the trio have earned their reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting live bands.
