Cutting edge jazz from New York with one of the most exciting and individualistic bands on the current scene. Pianist, Melford’s singular sound world combines hard aggression with the meditative, cerebral and playful. It’s intelligent, smart, and edge of your seat music, with a band packed with leading 2018 musicians: Ron Miles (cornet), Liberty Ellman (guitar), Stomu Takeishi (bass) and Gerald Cleaver (drums). “Full of bright, intense rhythms and complex harmonies... lean, lithe and appealing” (The Wall Street Journal), “filled with muscle, brains and poetic spark’ (Time Out).
Presented in association with sound
