John Law

Since his early beginnings as a classical child prodigy, then training as a classical concert pianist, and later changing over to jazz, contemporary composition and creative music in 1983, John Law has gained the reputation as being one of Europe's leading jazz pianist/composers. John Law, a prize-winning classical prodigy on piano, turned away from classical piano studies to pursue jazz and improvised music when he was 23 and has been involved in, and acclaimed for, his work in a wide variety of contemporary jazz projects: from solo piano concerts and albums through trio and quartet tours and recordings, right through to large scale works for his semi-classical ensemble Cornucopia. He has played at over fifty festivals worldwide and recorded over thirty albums, working with musicians as diverse as Gwilym Simcock, Andy Sheppard, Jason Rebello, Tim Garland and Evan Parker. John’s main projects currently are his acclaimed trio Congregation, which has toured all over Europe, appearing to stunning audience acclaim in concert halls, clubs and at festivals such as the North Sea jazz Festival (Rotterdam) or the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, at the London Jazz Festival, as well as solo piano projects and his electric project Boink! which combines electric keyboards, guitar, saxophone and drums with electronic music soundscapes and live, interactive visual backdrops.
