& THE ORIENT HOUSE ENSEMBLE
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 12TH
Gilad Atzmon (saxes)
Yaron Stavi (double-bass)
Frank Harrison (piano)
Chris Higginbottom (drums).
This enterprising and enduring outfit land in town for the first time to play music from, what has been described as, their most jazz oriented album to date.
‘These compositions’, says Atzmon, ‘are about love, nostalgia, devotion, and simplicity ’. So expect a thoughtful, more mellow and romantic vibe alongside the Coltranesque energy of Atzmon and the driving, muscular rhythms for which they are known.
Founded by Atzmon in 2000, the Orient House Ensemble has gained a reputation as one of Europe’s pre-eminent bands and has toured extensively around the world.
‘Atzmon sends his soprano sax and clarinet soaring over complex rhythms from all points of the globe with a poetry that never forfeits control. Nina Caplan, Metro
Together they represent a heartfelt, cultural hybrid driven by Atzmon’s powerful personal style, bebop artistry, political influences and Middle Eastern roots. Entitled The Whistle Blower, all of the above will conjoin in spadefuls to create an unmissable, unforgetful night.
TICKETS £15, £7 under 22s
