We had a splendid couple of days recording for the next ENTROPI album at Wincraft Studios in the Cotswolds. The album is being generously funded by PRSF through their Women Make Music scheme. We’ll be releasing the album on Whirlwind Recordings in 2017. Next up we’re at Lancaster Jazz Festival on 16th September!!
Really thrilled about playing at the Oxford in Kentish Town next Monday 18th. This long running contemporary jazz and improvised music night has been the backbone of the London creative scene for many years so it is a huge honour to share our material with the open minded listening audience that frequents this prestigious venue! Thanks to George Crowley for putting us on!
Scheduled missions in the first week of February:
Thursday 4th: Women Make Music launch, Newcastle Arts Centre
This is a Jazz North East promotion, a double bill with a fantastic improvising electronics duo of Shelley Knotts and Mariam Rezaei. Advanced tickets are available HERE. The evening will also signal the launch of Gina Southgate‘s ‘Woman Paints Music’ exhibition at the Newcastle Arts Centre. This will comprise live gig paintings and prints that include women and work made in the north east.
Friday 5th: ‘Freedom and Structure Workshop’, Sage Gateshead
This workshop will be exploring the tension between written material and free improvisation. Tickets are available HERE.
Sunday 7th: The Green Note, London
This monthly night of original/contemporary jazz is programmed by the amazing tenor saxophonist Alex Hitchcock. We will be joined by special guest Nick Walters (Beats & Pieces, Paradox Ensemble) on trumpet and sharing the bill with pianist James Beckwith and his trio. Advanced tickets available HERE.
What’s particularly exciting is that we will be exploring new material on these gigs and going into the studio in the not-too-distant future to record our second album. Watch this SPACE (no pun intended…)!
