Jazz Gig - John Turville - Solstice

Tori Freestone: saxes/flute Brigitte Beraha: voice John Turville: piano Jez Franks: guitar Dave Manington: double bass George Hart: drums Solstice is an ensemble comprising some of the foremost band leaders and composers emerging from the thriving East London music scene.

Having toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe with their own projects and artists as diverse as Kenny Wheeler, Tim Garland, Andy Sheppard, Dave Binney, Django Bates, Jasper Hoiby and Ivo Neame, this new group was conceived as an opportunity to explore the compositional possibilities inherent in a larger ensemble. The group have a unified sound drawing on influences from Brazil, New York, and France whilst retaining a uniquely British identity. Their debut album 'Alimentation', launched at the end of 2016 on Two Rivers Records is accompanied by a twenty date UK and European tour in 2017. "Solstice's set was steely, smooth and haunting; the more intense moments balanced by cool, shimmering plateaux of peace. Some of the compositions have a very urban, almost industrial sensibility to them; in my mind, its busy, chaotic, angular yet atonal lines seem to weave among streets of traffic and towering skyscrapers" - (Rory Duffy) Tickets are limited to ensure that the social and musical ambience is at its best. Tickets £12.50 including Mediterranean buffet or £ 7.50 without supper. Students £5.00 without supper.
