Luke Howard Trio

The Sanctuary

The Jazzlab

“This is an album that not only can withstand repeated listens, but calls the listener back again and again.” – Jazzwise Magazine (on A Dove, A Lion, A Coast, A Pirate)

Comprised of Luke Howard (piano), Jonathan Zion (bass) and Daniel Farrugia (drums), Luke Howard Trio’s minimalist aesthetic blends elements of improvised and popular music, with enthralling compositions by both Howard and Zion.

The trio regularly capture audiences with arrangements that curl and twist around the boundaries of a particular emotion. Though wordless, their compositions perform a function unique to music as a medium – that of evoking without describing, bringing listeners to a feeling which defies articulating.

For MIJF 2021 they launch their fourth album, The Sanctuary.
