Elysian

Double bassist, composer and arranger Duncan Hopkins has
been working at the highest levels of jazz for almost thirty years. In
that time he has worked with such luminaries as Norma Winstone,
Rob McConnell, Scott Hamilton, Houston Person, Warren Vache, Ed
Bickert, Mark Murphy, Lester Bowie, Dianna Krall, Kenny Wheeler,
Bobby Watson, Sam Rivers, Harry Allen and Edward Simon to name
but a few.
His newest project Elysian joins long time collaborator (and
2017 British Pianist of the Year) Nikki Iles and the incredibly talented
Thierry Peala from Paris. Together they have a unique chemistry
which “simulates eventide and candlelight
in one moment and sea breeze on your cheeks in the
next.” All About Jazz
Elysian expresses kindness, delicacy and expressive softness.
Qualities that are not so widespread today. With elegance and
refinement. Elysian transports us in a flight
between the notes of a dreaming heart and more
capable of experiencing the aromas and colours of a kind soul.

Duncan has toured extensively throughout Canada, Great
Britain, Europe, Brazil and the United States. He can be heard on
over fifty albums, numerous CBC, BBC and NPR recordings. He is a
long standing member of the jazz education group the Global Music
Foundation and continues to be visiting professor at the Royal
Academy of Music in London, England.
