Instrumental Sounds of Jazz: A Tribute to Carl Kirton

Friday 12 May, 6.30pm-9.00pm 

Enjoy a night of interactive talks and performances that celebrate the contribution jazz has made to the evolution of Black British music. Jazz is renowned for its great level of musicianship and its influence can be found in blends of calypso, funk, and soul. Yet, how much do we know of its powerful influence on the sounds we listen to today?

This night pays homage to Carl Kirton, a music collector who dedicated his life to recording and documenting this era in British History. Kirton’s extensive vinyl collection has recently been donated to our archives and features as part of the Black Sound exhibition. Listen to the sounds of modern jazz inan acoustic performance by bassist Gary Crosby OBE and singer Kianja Elliot-Harvey. Gary Crosby OBE is the Director of Tomorrows’ Jazz Warriors and is a former member of the Courtney Pine Band. Kianja Elliot-Harvey is an incredibly talented young woman with a big voice emerging in London’s jazz and soul scene. The live performances will also feature special guest Steve Williams, a renowned saxophonist and former member of Jazz Warriors.
