The Peter Edwards Trio is a group of musicians who work with composer, jazz pianist and musical director Peter Edwards to perform his music. Peter is the pianist in the group and he is joined by Max Luthert on bass and Moses Boyd on drums.
In 2011, Edwards’ piano trio was awarded a Help Musicians Development Award to help support the band’s progress. His debut trio album ‘Safe and Sound’ received 4* reviews in MOJO and The Evening Standard, and 3* in The Guardian. His most recent album, ‘A Matter of Instinct’ (2016), has received similarly positive reviews (The Guardian 3*).
Edwards and his band were recently selected to play at the Montreal Jazz Festival (2015) for a ‘BBC Introducing’ showcase in association with the PRS Foundation. The performance was recorded and later broadcast on BBC Radio’s ‘Jazz on 3’ and Jamie Cullum’s Radio 2 programme.
In 2017 Edwards was commissioned for the New Music Biennial, creating a piece of music that celebrated the history of jazz from 1917 to the present day. The Trio performed in Hull as part of the New Music Biennial weekend.
