As part of #4jazz’s amazing city-wide Jazz festival our Fargo Village emporium will be hosting a nighttime double bill of two of the most exciting performers of the festival: Dee Byrne’s Entropi and Corey Mwamba’s Yana!
This space jazz quintet led by Dee Byrne are currently making waves with their debut album. Juggling order and chaos, composition and improvisation, they take listeners on an exploration of the musical cosmos. ‘New Era’ was released on the F-IRE Presents label on 1st June 2015. They have been described as ‘interesting, stimulating music that is quite hard to pigeonhole gripped by a strong group instinct that moves from hard bop and structured modal sounds into more improv soaked free-bop.’
Corey Mwamba Trio
These guys got together in Stratford-upon-Avon on a dark and stormy night in November 2008, and from there have undertaken a Jazz Services national tour; performed at Manchester Jazz Festival; and supported US jazz saxophone legend David Murray. Their music is a free-wheeling, spontaneous mixture of styles.
The trio has developed a process entirely focussed on creating highly expressive live music that’s full of grooves and sounds composed, but is not; and playing compositions that don’t sound composed at all, but are. How it all works is not always clear but the process is always fascinating to hear and the results can be truly moving.
This concert takes places on Saturday 28th November from 8pm til 11:30pm. To book tickets for this very special performance, please click here.
