BOB SEDERGREEN AND FRIENDS

With David Jones and Evripides Evripidu

Saturday 12th November 2022

Time: 8:00 – 10:00 pm

 

 

These three exceptional musicians came together to form The David Jones Trio A trio that continually push the bounds of freely improvised contemporary music. Evri’s skilful use of soundscapes, David’s exploration of not just the drum kit and a plethora of all sorts of objects creating unique rhythms and polyrhythms Bob of course had been on the ground floor of this approach with the famous Brian Brown Quartet.

The trio made a ground-breaking double album called “Intuition “adding spiritual relevance to the music Tonight is a get together after a long absence, however due to space considerations the trio have agreed to the limitations of a normal piano trio, however the musical approach of creating music on the spot will be a major feature of the performance with the addition of some standards.

Don’t miss this unique and special performance.
