Jack Pescod is a self-taught pianist, an original composer, songwriter and natural improviser. Jack's work seamlessly bridges the gap between piano jazz, classical and eastern influences.
Jack began playing piano at the age of five having been greatly inspired by the stories of his great, great grandfather Michal Bergson - composer, Librettist and pupil of Chopin.
Jack formed the Barcode Trio in 2003 whilst living in Oxford and released the album License to live to great critical acclaim. The Barcode trio performed extensively around the UK and Europe including two shows at the Glastonbury festival in 2004.
In 2009 Jack moved back to his home county of Suffolk and formed The Jack Pescod quartet (JPQ) consisting of piano, trumpet, double bass and drums. After recording the album Circles, Jack was invited to headline the 2009 Brecon Jazz festival to tribute the late great Esbjorn Svenson.
In 2010 JPQ performed Circles for the London Jazz festival at the Barbican Centre. In 2012 Jack composed the album Home, a classical/jazz solo piano album which was a mix of improvisation and composition greatly inspired by the changing seasons of the Suffolk landscape. The album was recorded during a live performance at Potton Hall.
In 2015 Jack moved to Berlin where he completed his new solo Piano album Egregore and duo version of Egregore with Piano and Violin.
