Winner of BBC Young Jazz Musician 2020, Deschanel Gordon is already making waves on the UK jazz scene. He makes a welcome return to Sheffield following his hugely impressive autumn 2021 gig.
Deschanel lists the likes of Oscar Peterson, McCoy Tyner and Chick Corea as major influences. He's worked with upcoming trumpeter Mark Kavuma, Cassie Kinoshi’s SEED Ensemble and US-born singer Judi Jackson.
Expect a mixture of original tunes coming from a heavily straight-ahead swing context, but influenced by the contemporary London scene and the music of his Jamaican heritage, plus his own take on some selected jazz standards.
