Tim Lapthorn


Jeremy Shoham: sax
Phil Scragg: bass
Rick Finlay: drums



Tim Lapthorn’s reputation as both pianist and composer just keeps growing, and he’s now a major figure on the UK jazz scene, making regular appearances at Ronnie Scott’s and performing across the UK. He has performed and recorded with many the world’s leading jazz musicians including Chris Potter, Eddie Henderson, Ian Shaw & Jean Toussaint.

He leads his own trio with Arnie Somogyi and Stephen Keogh and also plays piano in groups led by, amongst others, singer Ian Shaw, bassist Arnie Somogyi and saxophonist Frank Griffith. Tim’s many influences include Charlie Parker, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk and Stevie Wonder. His favourite contemporary pianists are Herbie Hancock and Fred Hersch.

As the late Humphrey Lyttelton put it, ‘He’s a brilliant young pianist, whose work sparkles with originality and colour’. Tim is also a considerable composer, each of his trio albums including a rewarding mix of original pieces and jazz standards. Accessible yet highly creative, you really don't want to miss Tim's appearance at CAJ…
