A sneaky video taken by Percy at last night’s gig of Soweto ripping it up on Giant Steps.
We can reveal that iconic bass player Dave Holland and stalwart of the Birmingham scene Soweto Kinch will both be appearing as part of Harmonic. Dave will be presenting a concert with Birmingham Conservatoire students playing his own compositions to kick Harmonic off in style on Wednesday 10th March. Dave has been regularly visiting the Conservatoire in recent years, and we’re very pleased to launch Harmonic with an event which reflects our ethos of collaboration and innovation in jazz. Hopefully someone will leave a spare bass lying around for Dave too… Details can be found here
Soweto will be making his first ever appearance at Cobweb Collective’s weekly residency at The Yardbird Jazz Club on Thursday 11th March. Well known throughout the city and indeed the country for pioneering jazz and hip-hop, Soweto never fails to impress and astound audiences and musicians alike. Known equally for his fluid alto playing and his sharp freestyle, this is a great opportunity to check him out at a great venue free of charge.
Also appearing at The Yardbird will be Lluis Mather with his award-winning quartet. Lluis is fast becoming one of the most in demand sax players on the Birmingham scene. His fantastic quartet were the deserved recipients of the Dave Holland Ensemble Prize this year, so it seems only fitting that they appear on the same bill.
