Pianist Geoff Eales was raised in the South Wales valleys and has a long and illustrious career. He was part of the BBC Concert Big Band for several years as well as accompanying pianist to star names including Dame Shirley Bassey and Dame Kiri Takanawa. Eales is a musician as easily at home with hard hitting, free improvised jazz as he is with tender melodic playing. He joined Chris Philips for a chat about his 13th album 'Transcience' and to play a couple of solo piano pieces.
