Aubin Vanns Trio Contemporary, nuanced guitar trio

Half a half-dozen jazz musicians playing original music by Aubin Vanns. Flashes of brightness and colourful streaks contrast with dark, brooding ambience. AVT spin their own common thread from eclectic fibres, with a typically post-modern list of influences including Richard Strauss, Jim Hall and Neil Young. Featuring previous Yamaha Jazz Scholar and current Big Bad Wolf drummer, Jay Davis and in-demand young bassist Simon Read.

Although undeniably influenced by the great guitar-led trios of the past, AVT strive to push this format with the use of electronic effects, auxiliary percussion and poetic influence. Purely abstract compositions nestle with pieces written to words by Yeats and Kerouac. AVT blends dynamic melodicism with vibrant sensitivity to create beautiful and engaging music.

AVT have performed at venues including Manchester Jazz Festival 2017, the Green Note, Camden and Sela Bar, Leeds.

Aubin Vanns is a jazz guitarist based in London. He has gained a reputation for his mature and original improvisational style as well as his melodic compositional style. As well as leading his own trio, he also currently plays original music in the groups Space Time Crystal and Lanterns.
