***** Jazz Special *****

"One of the most exciting trios in improvised music" Jazz Podium
If you missed them last year, then its your loss. It was simply an astonishing gig. The release of their third album "String Theory" took the British Press by storm receiving multiple four and five star reviews and making onto a number of "best jazz albums of 2015" lists already. Combine this with a tour of China, a series of major festivals, and a hefty work schedule to 2016, this is really a band not to miss when you get the chance in 2017!!!.
"String Theory is one of the most successful jazz / classical collaborations I've heard, a genuinely convincing hybrid... the album is a brilliant realisation of all the ambitions and objectives Eagles had for the project.... an astonishing performance." Ian Mann

Wednesday 10/5/17 Big Sky

***** Jazz Special *****

Big Sky Quartet, four kindred spirits with a wealth of musical experience and talent have turned their backs to the London scene and have put down roots in the Welsh Borders, creating their own blend of self-penned lyrical tunes propelled along by distinctively Brazilian and world rhythms. Happily following in the giant steps of musicians like Weather Report, Joe Lovano and Chick Corea, Big Sky are producing an accessible, melodic jazz fusion that is picking up new fans wherever they play.

Wednesday 14/6/17 Duski

***** Jazz Special *****

Aidan Thorne's Duski project has grown over the years both in compositional strength and unity as a coherent playing outfit. Thorne's writing certainly does provide a refreshing repertoire which echoes broad and diverse sources. Duski is a young contemporary band, with plenty to say. Well worth listening to, bringing whatever 'jazz music' is, bang up to date!

Wednesday 27/9/17 Örjan Hultén Orion

***** Jazz Special *****

Örjan Hultén, one of Sweden's foremost saxophonists and improvisers, is a musical explorer always looking for the next challenge. In his compositions Örjan Hultén moves effortlessly across boundaries and musical genres. Here and there Middle Eastern and Balkan traits can be heard while one can distinguish traces from Wayne Shorter or Joni Mitchell in other parts. Örjan Hultén Orion is featuring four of Sweden’s top musicians, each of them a wellknown and celebrated musician/bandleader in his own right. This is the first time the quartet is touring the UK. Örjan Hultén – saxophones, Torbjörn Gulz – piano, Filip Augustson – bass, Peter Danemo - drums
”Weighty jazz music of absolute world class.” Svenska Dagbladet
”A proper parade of ensemble playing and composing skills” - Nerikes Allehanda
”a well coherent reflection over contemporary acoustic jazz” – Dagens Nyheter
”his calm and convincing playing in combination with the intensity and power of the tone is strongly impressive” –Orkester Journalen
