If you want a statement of where the jazz mainstream is heading, look no further.
David Murray‘s daring, headlong saxophonics collide with the expansive piano improv of Geri Allen and the sheer subtlety and power of Terri Lyne Carrington, one of today’s key drummers – music that digs deep into the jazz tradition, whilst sitting fair and square in the 21st century. Freedom and form in complete equilibrium from three key soloists whose collective CV stretches from the swing and funk of the mainstream to the outer reaches of the avant-garde.
‘The rapport between these three masterful players was quite palpable’ (DownBeat)
‘The tension between form and freedom is obvious but never overstated, and the rapport within the trio is exceptionally strong’ (New York Times)
London-based band Nérija opens the show. Fresh from a stunning set opening for Ernest Ranglin, a chance to hear this tradition busting group, inspired by jazz, hip hop, Afrobeat and highlife.
