Featuring a first-call London rhythm section - Dario Di Lecce and Josh Morrison on double bass and drums respectively - the music demonstrates the great strides taken both by Latchin as an individual and the trio as a whole since the release of his 2017 debut record Introducing: “Elegant, tasteful and swinging!” - Renée Fleming.
Recognised as a talented composer and arranger, Latchin’s writing is fresh and original, whilst reflecting his serious study of the jazz piano tradition. On I’ll Be Home for Christmas Latchin presents well-known songs through the eyes of his musical idols. For example, how might Bill Evans approach a Christmas song? What would Ahmad Jamal do with “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”?
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. He is also the 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.
