Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Elliot Galvin is one of the rising stars of jazz. A superbly gifted composer and pianist with a maverick imagination, he has a magpie-like ability to blend a disparate world of influences into his own. Galvin's music is both playful and deadly serious, drawing on a wide range of influences from Keith Jarrett and Stravinsky to Deerhoof and the Beatles, as well as the films of David Lynch, the Dada movement and the literature of James Joyce. Winner of the 2014 European Young Jazz Artist of the Year Award in Germany, the Elliot Galvin Trio released their début album Dreamland to rave reviews, with the Guardian calling it "audaciously accomplished" and BBC Radio 3 saying it was "bold and progressive." Punch marks the trio's Edition Records début.
