New project launches in March

March sees the launch of two new bands formed by Chris Biscoe, and first performance of a Way Out West themed night.

On March 4th Way Out West performs Giant Steps Revisited. The music is from the 1959 album Giant Steps by the great John Coltrane which changed the face of jazz. Coltrane took the jazz world by storm with his stunning solo on the title track, while the unforgettable Naima, featured on current art-cinema hit movie Ida, Mr PC and Cousin Mary have all become jazz standards. This will be a unique opportunity to hear a contemporary, live performance of music originally created for the studio.

TWO OF A MIND, a new band with alto saxophonist Allison Neale, will be exploring afresh the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standard material recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind.

In this band Chris will be concentrating on baritone sax, with a sidestep to alto for a couple of Lee Konitz tunes.

In DISORDER AT THE BORDER Chris revives his longstanding partnership with cellist Ben Davis. Three generations of musicians from three London jazz collectives - Chaos, Way Out West and F-IRE collectives - play music crossing the jazz spectrum created by everyone in the band. 

Comparative newcomers Elliot Galvin, Tom McCredie and Corrie Dick are swiftly gaining recognition as some of the most creative musicians on the British and European scene.
