Leon Foster Thomas and Tal Cohen session

Trini-born Miami-based Steel Pan player Leon “Foster” Thomas made a welcome return to the UK with a sell-out night of breathless virtuosity at London’s Jazz@PizzaExpress on August 3rd.

Leon is the go-to guy for his instrument in the U.S and recently released a superb album called ‘Metamorphosis.’ Leon is steadily building a reputation for pushing the instrument into new territories.

His band included acclaimed pianist Tal Cohen. Following on from Leon’s earlier solo session the pair came into Jazz FM for a duo session after the gig and performed an arrangement of ‘What Is This Thing Called Love.’
