EFG London Jazz Festival: Miguel Gorodi Nonet
Fri 18 November 2016, 20:30 – 23:00 GMT
Described as 'supremely gifted' by JazzFM, rising star trumpeter Miguel Gorodi (Ian Shaw, Barry Green) leads his Stravinsky-inspired nonet.
Featuring some of the most sought-after members of the flourishing London jazz scene, the MIGUEL GORODI NONET plays music inspired by the likes of Steve Lehman, Thelonious Monk, Louis Andriessen, Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, Gérard Grisey and Stravinsky, whose influences are reflected in the form, texture, harmony and rhythm of Gorodi's compositions. Rich and complex textures blend with deceptively simple melodic and rhythmic motifs, with some incredible improvising thrown in for good measure.
