Cloudmakers Trio

Jim Hart – vibes
Dave Smith – drums
Michael Janisch – bass

Vibraphonist Jim Hart has established himself as one of the premier creative jazz musicians of his generation in the UK. In demand on both drums and vibraphone his creative output has been heralded in the international jazz press as being unique and forward thinking, whilst holding a firm foot in many of jazz’s great traditions, from both the American and European schools.
His new group the Cloudmakers Trio plays original music by Jim that lies somewhere between New York's 'downtown' sound and the modern European tradition. It features his regular sparring partner Dave Smith on drums, and US born, London resident Michael Janisch on bass. Together these three have played in many different outfits and projects most notably collaborating with New York trumpeter Ralph Alessi for a highly acclaimed UK tour last summer.
