2012 release from the Manchester-based Jazz trio. Featuring pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Grant Russell and drummer Rob Turner (all still in their 20 s),
GoGo Penguin draw on a heady brew of influences from Aphex Twin to Brian Eno, Debussy to Shostakovich and Massive Attack to EST. GoGo Penguin who have already developed a growing cult following in the North West as well as turning in storming performances at the Gateshead International and Manchester Jazz Festival's first came to label head Matthew Halsall's attention when he heard them at a friend's night (Norvun Devolution) at the Roadhouse in Manchester. He was immediately drawn to their sublime collective empathy and the seamless fusion of jazz, classical and Electronica influences in their music.
