Recognised as a talented composer, Latchin’s writing is fresh and original, while reflecting his serious study of the jazz piano tradition - Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Art Tatum, Phineas Newborn and Barry Harris are his idols. On The Moon and I, four Latchin pieces are presented alongside new arrangements of standards and classic jazz compositions.
Anticipation for the new recording has been high, with pre-orders from Japan before production was even completed.
An in-demand sideman across a range of projects, Latchin was personally invited by Christian McBride to perform with himself and Renée Fleming at Wigmore Hall. The pianist is also the new musical director for Claire Martin and Ray Gelato’s touring show, Let There Be Love.
A regular performer at London’s premier jazz venues such as Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Jazz Club and the 606, Latchin can often be heard with contemporaries Sara Dowling, Atila, Nat Steele’s ‘Portrait of the MJQ’ and The Steve Fishwick Quartet. He has also performed with Salena Jones, Roy Hargrove, Jason Marsalis, Ronnie Cuber and Grant Stewart.
