John Surman and Bergen Big Band – Another Sky: ‘Surman at Seventy’ residency
LONDON Kings Place (Hall One)
90 York Way
£9.50 - £29.50
+ Booking fee
The Surman at Seventy residency continues with this concert.
John Surman’s collaboration with a big band of massive energy and spirit has produced a fine recording of original music - Another Sky provides a tremendous setting for the band’s fine range of individual soloists - the emotionally charged alto playing of leader Olav Dale a special highlight - as well as featuring Surman’s own rumbustious excursions on baritone and soprano saxophones.
The Bergen Big Band themselves have an impressive pedigree over two decades – a myriad of projects include playing with jazz icons Phil Woods and Joe Henderson, as well as innovative forces such as Maria Schneider, Terje Rypdal and Dino Saluzzi.
The massively influential Norwegian singer Karin Krog will join John and the Bergen Big Band on stage as a special guest.
