Event description

Description

In response to the eternal assumption that the only woman in the band must be the singer, Bitches Brew is a night of music written, improvised and performed by some of the best female instrumentalists around.

Flying in the face of reports that all-female bands are often seen by bookers as novelty acts, and that more than one in a night would just be over-kill, double bass player Emma Smith presents a gloriously eclectic night of music which celebrates the mind-blowing variety of talent pushing the boundaries of creative music.

For the Galsgow International Jazz Festival Bitches Brew presents four outstanding bands with women at the helm...

MAUD THE MOTH

Maud the Moth was founded as the solo project of the singer and pianist Amaya López-C. Hailing from Madrid, and cycling through various line-ups, she now partners up with Paúl González on drums to expand its heartfelt musical universe, which draws on a wide-ranging musical background including jazz, classical, avant garde, soul and even some elements of metal.

RACHAEL COHEN

Rachael Cohen, a London-based alto saxophonist and composer, is one of the jazz worlds brightest stars. Her playing style and skills as a composer and improviser have gained her a great deal of attention in the UK and beyond. London Jazz notes:
“....a considerable compositional and instrumental talent”
Her critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Halftime’ (on Michael Janisch’s Whirlwind Recordings) catapulted Cohen’s reputation to one of the premier new voices of her generation in the UK’s jazz and improvised music www.rachaelcohenmusic.com


*** DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, COLLECTIVE X WILL NOW BE APPEARING LATER IN THE YEAR. IN THEIR PLACE WE HAVE THE INCREDIBLE BELL LUNGS...***

BELL LUNGS

Bell Lungs weaves layered vocal harmonies and instrumental loops together into a psychedelic, post-folk soundscape that draws on natural cycles, environmental disaster and the microcosmic aspects of relationships. Her vocals were deemd "elemental" by cult arts critic David Keenan of The Wire, and her latest song, Mosul Dam - released by Sonido Polifonico on a split 7" with psychedelic-folk songstress Pekin on he flip - was described as "disarming and demurring" by music blog Losing Today. She is known for collaborating with poets, kinetic sculptures, artists, dancers and theatre-makers, and has performed in the UK, USA, Spain, Germany and Italy, in venues common and uncommon, including art galleries, museums, double-decker buses, ancient ruins, a disused grain silo and a hydroelectric power station. www.bell-lungs.bandcamp.com/music


KIKAZARU

Like a trip on an ocean liner manned by Terry Gilliam himself, Kikazaru plunges fearlessly into the depths of their collective knowledge, with tunes emerging from the free improvised mayhem before disintegrating again in an endless search for beauty and chaos. Lucy Forde (flute), Emma Smith (double bass), River of Slime (sampler/loops/effects), Graeme Stephen (guitar/ loops/effects), and special guest Phil Hague (Admiral Fallow) on Drums.
