“They were individually and in combination electrifying… The quintet are individually top-drawer players. Hart’s writing and their empathy meshes them into a formidable unit.” – Mike Collins, jazz blogger
As the first of two headline ensembles this week, this jazz supergroup alights in Wells with its own brand of virtuosic and risk-taking original music. Their sound lies somewhere between New York’s downtown and the modern European tradition. Expect the exotic textures of jazz vibraphone to play a big part. There is a jazz workshop with Cloudmakers Five at 3.00pm in Cedars Hall.
