Elliott Sansom - Pianist

By nellacphoto  
Photographed at the London Jazz Festival - pianist with the Clark Tracy Quintet (son of Stan Tracy) - November 2019

Elliott Sansom, born in 1994, grew up in a musical family, and from a young age he was exposed to different types of music, particularly blues music, becoming intrigued by the music of Ray Charles. There was always a piano in the household, and from five years old, Elliott began experimenting with the instrument after showing a keen interest when hearing his mother and grandma playing. Throughout school and college years, Elliott opted to study music and was very tuned into jazz and improvisation, showing a passion for artists such as Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson. In 2010, Elliott gained a place at Yehudi Menuhin School. This was a great opportunity and set him on the right pathway in his musical journey. Further that year, Elliott gained a place at the Junior Jazz department at the Birmingham Conservatoire, following up with the main course resulting in a first class BA (hons).

The juxtaposition of the three elements is spot on (yep, I know that sounds pretentious but I couldn’t phrase it any better).

Very well done Colin, a fascinating write-up for a fine photo Has a slightly ‘spit-and sawdust’ feel to it which fits perfectly.

At the risk of sounding pretentious, I would say the juxtaposition of all the elements couldn't be better, Colin.


p.s. There's a certain impromptu-jam-session feel about the image.

A great DOF with the principal player, sandwiched between the out of focus, foreground and background band members.
