Description


Blazing Flame Quintet play contemporary jazz based around the songs of poet, Steve Day. The French critic David Cristol described their latest CD as “mindblowing.”This year they have played prestigious venues such as The Vortex in London and Bristol Old Vic Theatre.

Steve Day has lived in the Chew Valley for 30 years but this is the first time he has brought his music so close to home. He is joined by Peter Evans on electric violin, recently described by the Italian magazine Music Zoom, as "breathtakingly stunning." Mark Langford, playing tenor saxophone & bass clarinet, is a renowned improviser. They are joined by Julian Dale, double bass & cello and Anton Henley percussion, both steeped in orchestral & jazz music. All five have worked in various combinations with contemporary jazz legends Keith & Julie Tippett. Gods, gardeners, painters, politicians, divas and film directors all play a part in these songs. Whether you’re a modern-jazz connoisseur or just interested in trying something different, this is a highly recommended concert. Opportunities to hear such cutting edge entertainment don’t come round very often - not to be missed!

Current recording:

Blazing Flame Quintet The Set List Shuffle (Leo Records CD LR 788)
