ELF Trio

Reflections album cover
ELF is truly a meeting of like musical minds. Nothing is out of bounds. Everything goes into the mix – classical, folk, jazz, rock, latin, musicals and more. Dave and Andy are indispensable members of the world renowned Michael Nyman Band whilst Geoff is one of Europe’s most inspirational jazz pianists. Aside from being three of London’s most in-demand studio musicians they are also international solo artists in their own right, all three having recorded their own critically acclaimed albums.

Apart from original compositions and arrangements from within the group, ELF is fortunate in being able to call upon writers from across the spectrum, from Andrew Lloyd Webber to Michael Nyman. Anyone who knows Geoff, Dave and Andy will tell you that they are larger than life characters and their intense love of music and indeed life in general all help to create the unique sound that is ELF.

Michael Nyman Band

Michael Nyman Band

Michael Nyman is an English composer of minimalist music, pianist, librettist and musicologist, perhaps best known for the many scores he wrote during his lengthy collaboration with the filmmaker Peter Greenaway.

As a member of MNB since 1995 I have toured the world playing Michael’s music. His music stretches one’s physical stamina and challenges techniques in a uniquely enjoyable way. Whether in the concert hall or in the recording studio the nature of performing in the band is like being in a family – warts and all!
