Jazz @ Green Note presents… Zenel Trio + Sam Watts Trio
ZENEL TRIO: ‘Virtuosic jazz and electronica mashed with thundering grooves’ ‘Laurence Wilkins, Zoe Pascal and Noah Stoneman came together through London’s youth jazz scene in 2016 to create fresh, original music combining their jazz improvisation to a MIDI based electronic set up. They have since wowed audiences at Love Supreme festival 2017, the Royal Albert Hall, New Generation Jazz, Jazzrefreshed, Cambridge Jazz Festival and are scheduled to play at Brainchild and Wilderness Festival in 2018.’
