Coming tomorrow , all day Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival 2018 marathon is looking really good and full of treasures. Those long time recognised, but still not that easy to hear too often, as well as promising new-comers. For the ticket price I call it a steal! Repertoire wise it is absolutely “Carte d’or” for every improvised (and not only) music fan.
St Luke’s Church, Queen’s Park, Brighton / Sat 13th October 2018
1500 – 2230 / Unreserved Pew Seating / Fully Licensed Bar
The Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival’s main event is on Saturday October 13th – an all-day event in St Luke’s Church featuring six unique performances by artists from the UK, Europe and the US.
Making a rare UK appearance, Philadelphia’s IRREVERSIBLE ENTANGLEMENTS will provide an uncompromising mix of free-jazz and the poetry of Camae Ayewa (aka Moor Mother).
German tenor-terror PETER BROTZMANN will reconvene with brutal Swiss rhythm section Marino Pliakas (bass guitar) and Michael Wertmüller (drums) as Full Blast.
Young British trumpeter Laura Jurd will lead her band DINOSAUR, also featuring Elliot Galvin (synths), Ruth Goller (bass) and Seb Rochford (drums).
Manchester-based pianist ADAM FAIRHALL will perform a piano solo.
UK-based improvisers David Birchall (guitar), Andrew Cheetham (drums), Julie Kjær (flute) and Hannah Marshall (cello) will perform as a quartet specially commissioned by Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival.
From New York, heavyweight pianist MATTHEW SHIPP will play a duet with his longstanding partner in music, Brazilian saxophonist, Ivo Perelman.
