Solo:Duo:Trio Live album reviewed in R ‘n’ R Magazine May 2018

Those following the young Kent based singer-songwriter Luke Jackson’s career will already be aware that he can be found gracing the stage as a solo troubadour. However, he is just as at home working as a duo or trio. The singers fourth full length album takes the opportunity to showcase each of these formats across fifteen tracks.
As live albums tend to, Solo:Duo:Trio casts its gaze across Jackson’s back catalogue for its running order. It’s testament to his prowess as a songwriter that there isn’t a single filler track. Each track presents the art and craft of composition at the highest level. The delivery is equally stunning. Despite his tender years, Luke Jackson is blessed with a rich sonorous voice redolent of John Martyn with just a hint of Bert Jansch. His guitar playing also evokes Martyn and his compatriots but with a contemporary tinge.
Able assistance is provided on the ‘duo’, ‘trio’ tracks by Andy Sharps on Bass and Connor Downs on Drums. Given the stripped back nature of the instrumentation the arrangements are, necessarily, simplified in comparison to the studio versions. But the sheer quality of the performance means they are no less powerful for their straitened means.
