    24TH SEPTEMBERSpecial Edition curated by LAURA JURD.  J FRISCO, CORRIE DICK, TOTAL VIBRATION  

     

J Frisco - Jemma Freese - Keys, Lara Jones - Saxophone, Megan Roe - Guitar 

Genre fluid art and music. J Frisco is a trio of soprano saxophone, electric guitar, keyboards and vocals; they create improvised music and soundscapes that are drawn from their emotions, the world, political and gender issues. They aim to engage and inspire their audience through the use of multiple genres and cross art forms, taking their listeners on a journey, often described as the ‘J Frisco Experience’. They have been selected as ‘Jazz North’s introducing artist 2017’, are on Lancaster Jazz Festival’s artist development programme and have received funding from Help Musicians UK to promote females in the improvised/jazz scene. Recently they have played live on Chapel Fm radio station, supported Matthew Bourne, Edgar Jones, Roller Trio and Elliot Galvin. They thrive on challenging both their own and their audiences perceptions, pushing each performance to new levels. 

 

Corrie Dick - Solo drums
 
An innovative presence on the UK music scene, Glaswegian Corrie Dick is a musician recognised for his fluency, gritty sound and euphoric abandon on the drum kit. He has caused a stir on the UK and European jazz scenes appearing with the Mercury-nominated Dinosaur led by trumpeter Laura Jurd, Elliot Galvin Trio and Rob Luft amongst others. His own critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Impossible Things’ released November 2015 displays his striking abilities as a composer/lyricist, skilfully fusing Celtic folk and contemporary jazz with North African rhythms, having studied traditional music in both Ghana and Morocco. A graduate of Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, Corrie has received numerous accolades including the title of the 2013 BBC's Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year and multiple Parliamentary Jazz Award nominations.
 

 

Total Vibration - Laura Jurd - Trumpet, Chris Batchelor - Trumpet, Tom Herbert - Bass, Corrie Dick - Drums 
 
Featuring 4 of the UK's most extraordinary improvisers 'Total Vibration' is a double-trumpet ensemble that dives head-first into repertoire old and new. Hailing from acclaimed bands such as Loose Tubes, Polar Bear and Dinosaur, the band's characteristically bold approach to improvising turns any tune into a riveting, brass-fuelled adventure. Channeling the free-spirit of musicians like Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus and Geri Allen, these four musicians are equally at home playing free music as they are weaving their way through tighter structures. The trumpet times two, as you've never heard it before.
