A living legend of British jazz, Mike Walker's career has propelled him from Salford to across the world. In his trio he brings together two of his longstanding collaborators who represent the cream of the North Westâ€™s jazz talent.
In recent years, Walker has been best known for the UK-US collaborative project â€œThe Impossible Gentlemenâ€ which has attracted rave reviews in the press internationally as well as attracting impressive audiences in Leicester and elsewhere.
Iain Dixon has a long history of collaboration with Walker as well as the BBC Radio Orchestra and Big Band, Joni Mitchell, Michael Brecker and numerous film soundtracks. He recently became the fifth member of the Impossible Gentlemen.
Pianist Les Chisnall is well known as a composer, educator and performer, teaching at Chethamâ€™s school of Music and Leeds College of Music and performing with Kenny Wheeler, John Surman and Neil Yates amongst others.
