We have a real treat to kick off our term... As usual entry is £3/£4 and music kicks off at 20:30 and will be followed by an open stage jam. 8:30pm - Introspection Julian Woods - guitar Eddie Bains - saxes Mikey Ahearn - trumpet Harry Morgan - piano Joseph Bradley - bass James Graham - drums Providing a short supporting set for The Delegation, Introspection is a new contemporary modal jazz and jazz-rock ensemble based in Oxford, UK. The band released its debut EP on the 10th April 2017. The band is lead by composer and guitarist Julian Woods and plays his original compositions and arrangements, which explore colourful modal harmony, open improvisation, dense textures, contemporary through-composition, and rock-like timbres. Hear the EP: introspectionmusic.bandcamp.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/IntrospectionJazz/ ** 9:15pm - The Delegation (from New York) Gabriel Zucker - piano, compositions Lorena del Mar - voice João Guimarães Ferreira - alto saxophone Greg Sallet - saxophone Max Luthert - bass Alex Goldberg - drums TBA - sax www.thedelegation.org vimeo.com/album/4271424 Gabriel Zucker’s indie jazz orchestra The Delegation was founded in 2013, and has already broken new ground in New York’s dynamic music scene. Combining Zucker’s metric complexity and maximalist approach with the melodic stylings of indie rock, the group’s impressive roster of jazz players forge a unique and emotionally immediate sound, representing a singular approach to improvisation in the 21st century. In October 2016, The Delegation released Evergreen (Canceled World), Zucker’s impassioned 12-movement composition that serves as the band’s sprawlingly ambitious debut record. One of the only contemporary 2016 releases on ESP-Disk’, the singular record appeared on top-10 lists and was hailed as a “fascinating form of sonic installation” in a 4.5-star review in Downbeat. Awarding the record 4 stars, All About Jazz raved that Evergreen “totally lives up to its larger-than-life sweep and scope.” With protean production by Zucker and pop producer Chris Connors, the nearly-two-hour record features everything from angular rhythmic grooves to Radiohead-inspired soundscapes to jarring electronics-infused chamber music to enigmatic lullabies. The Delegation is currently working on its sophomore record, Leftover Beats From The Edges Of Time, portions of which were premiered by Zucker in a March 2017 solo recital at Weill Hall (Carnegie Recital Hall). This is the third stop of the band's 8-concert European tour: 22 April 2017, 20:00 | Map Cafe, London, UK 23 April 2017, 20:00 | Jazz East @ The Alex, Felixstowe, UK 25 April 2017, 20:30 | Mad Hatter, Oxford, UK 26 April 2017, 20:00 | Haekem, Brussels, Belgium 27 April 2017, 20:30 | Wine Note, Thionville, France 28 April 2017, 20:15 | Salon de Jazz, Cologne, Germany 30 April 2017, 19:00 | Cascadas, Hamburg, Germany 1 May 2017, 20:30 | t Berlin, Berlin, Germany
