Bringing barrier busting sounds.
Every month Jazz In The Round gathers at The Cockpit with 3 acts.
Barrier busting Sounds. In The Round.
The night consists of three acts.
The opening slot is dedicated to new and emerging artists. This is followed by a solo set, and then our main headliner.
As part of our dedication to supporting new and emerging artists, we record their set.
This is then broadcast two Sundays later on Jez Nelson's Sunday night show on Jazz Fm.
MONDAY 27TH MAY
WOMEN OF JAZZ:
CAMILLA GEORGE, NIKKI YEOH, DEE BYRNE ENTROPI
Born in Eket, Nigeria, Camilla George has been interested in music from an early age and particularly in the fusion of African and Western music.
Camilla went on to study with many jazz greats such as Jean Toussaint, Julian Siegal and Martin Speake at Trinity College of Music where she gained a Masters in Jazz Performance as well as in 2011 being awarded The Archer Scholarship for Outstanding Performance.
Camilla’s love of fusing African and Western Music to make her own unique style is a key reason why she is a firm fixture on the new London Jazz scene. She has been nominated for an Urban Music Award for Best Jazz artist in 2017 and 2018 as well as being nominated for a Jazz FM award for best instrumentalist 2019. She is currently preparing to embark on a new project with China Moses and Theo Croker which will tour in 2020.
Camilla's set will feature Winston Clifford, Daniel Casimir & Al MacSween.
Nikki Yeoh is a creative free spirit who, although deeply rooted in the language of improvisation, is open to a range of music that leans as much to populism as it does high art.
Since her emergence on the British jazz scene in the mid 90s, pianist Nikki has proved to be an improviser, composer and all-round adventurer who has continually sought to broaden her musical horizons.
In April 17 Nikki received The Jazz FM Instrumentalist of the Year Award sponsored by Rathbones.
Dee Byrne's Entropi has been steadily developing its own dynamic band sound since its beginnings in 2010.
Placing a high importance on imrovisation, Dee Byrne’s compositions allow breathing space for depth of communication and interaction between the band members. Juggling order and chaos, composition and improvisation, the group takes listeners on a journey with compelling group interplay, strong themes, open-ended improvisation, dark grooves and interweaving melodic textures. The ensemble comprises bandleader and alto saxophonist Dee Byrne, trumpeter Andre Canniere, keyboardist Rebecca Nash, drummer Matt Fisher and bassist Olie Brice.
