Friday 10 November
All orders will be subject to a fee of £1.50 except if your tickets are free or if you are a member
In a nutshell
Killer triple bill from the increasingly active London-based record label.
Whirlwind head honcho, bassist Michael Janisch, leads a terrific Stateside Quartet with the Pakistani/American guitarist Rez Abbasi – rapidly emerging as one of today’s major new voices on his instrument – alongside saxophonist Walter Smith III and the brilliant drummer Clarence Penn. Award-winning trumpeter Henry Spencer’s ‘gleaming tone’ (Jazzwise) lies at the core of an exciting young band playing out of the tradition with an invigorating freshness and attitude, whilst saxophonist Strigalev’s zany trio takes that same tradition by the scruff of the neck, combining ‘hip jazz virtuosity and surrealism’ (Guardian) in equal measures.
