Adam Fairhall & Johnny Hunter

The duo of pianist Adam Fairhall and drummer Johnny Hunter explore the sounds of early jazz - namely stride and free music - through an avant-garde lens. For their latest project, the pair tackle the repertoire covered by Trinidadian pianist Winifred Atwell, who experienced the height of her popularity in post-war Britain; Winifred Atwell Revisited sees the music of American honky-tonk piano and British music hall traditions into Fairhall and Hunter's piano-drums duo setting.
