Geoffrey Keezer and Gillian Margot

Geoffrey Keezer and Gillian Margot

GRAMMY-nominated pianist Geoffrey Keezer features scintillating and soulful vocalist Gillian Margot for an evening of duets.

With his highly regarded discography, unique compositions, and acclaimed performances in a variety of configurations, pianist Geoffrey Keezer commands the attention typically reserved for the living legends of jazz.

Gillian Margot is the rarest sort of singer - the kind that makes people sit up and listen. She has an exquisite voice, a disarmingly wide range and a style that is deeply rooted in the tradition of the great jazz vocalists, yet she possesses a gift of storytelling and emotionally intelligent lyrical delivery that is refreshingly free of “jazz singer” clichés.

Knusprige Wimpern

Jun

Knusprige Wimpern

Knusprige Wimpern is a five-piece band from Passau, Germany that bases their unique original compositions on bules, pop, jazz, the swirly sounds of the late 60´s and the progressive rock of the early 70´s. Psychedelic guitar, groovy percussion, playful bass, piano with a classical touch and angle-like vocals make up their weird and wonderful music. 

 

The group formed in the winter of 2015 when Katharina Müller (piano/voc) and Mike Krompaß (guitar//flute/voc) decided to have a play together. Katharina brought her friend Hannah Paularsen (guitar/voc) along and later in the process Bernhard Senkmüller (drums/percussion) and Valentin Weber (bass) joined and they rehearsed existing material and soon started composing together.


Olivia Moore Trio

Jun
17

One of the UK’s most innovative and creative violin­ists, Olivia is dedicated to jazz and classical Indian music, while also drawing influence from flamenco, gypsy and folk. Tonight she presents a subtle and original fusion of all of these traditions. Olivia cites the seminal Jan Garbarek/Zakir Hussain/John McLaughlin album 'Making Music' as a prime influence on her work. If you like that, you'll love this. And if you're unfamiliar with it, you still won't be disappointed!

"Moore her­self can obvi­ously play the violin with great dex­ter­ity, but for the most part she used it with eco­nomy and for this she must be cred­ited; although this was her pro­ject, this was a group effort music­ally and it shows her matur­ity as a leader that she gave so much space to others involved."
