London Jazz Festival announced

This article was posted on 3 Oct 2018.

This year’s EFG London Jazz Festival will run from Friday 16 November to Sunday 25 November. As usual, the Festival will encompass many prominent London venues, including the Barbican, the Southbank Centre, Cadogan Hall and Kings Place.

Single reed highlights are as follows. The Near East Quartet and Kyungso Park (the latter playing gayageum, a traditional Korean stringed instrument) will perform on Monday 19 November at 7.45pm at the Southbank Centre’s Purcell Room. Featuring saxophonist/clarinettist Sungjae Son, the quartet released their self-titled album on ECM this summer. Meanwhile, Tim Garland’s Weather Walker Trio with cellist Abel Selaocoe will appear on Thursday 22 November at 8pm at Kings Place (Hall Two). Garland doubles on saxes, bass clarinet and flute and has played in Ronnie Scott’s band and more recently with Chick Corea, among many other projects. Weather Walker is his most recent album, available on Spotify to give an idea of his current stylistic direction.

Kings Place (Hall One) will host the Dave Brubeck Quartet on Wednesday 21 November at 7.30pm, featuring the saxophonist Dave O’Higgins. On Friday 16 November, in the same venue’s Hall Two, there will be a concert entitled Ethan Iverson Residency: Raising
Hell with Henry Purcell. Featuring the sax players Cath Roberts and Dee Byrne, this event will see pianist and composer Ethan Iverson take inspiration from British music, from free improvisation to British jazz, Purcell and Constant Lambert. It is one of several Ethan Iverson residency concerts. And on Friday 23 November, British saxophonist Camilla George will perform at 7.45pm in the Purcell Room, presenting material from her second album The People Could Fly on Ubuntu Records. George has been called ‘the Golden Girl of Jazz’ by the Evening Standard.

The above represents only a selection of concerts featuring clarinet or saxophone, so be sure to visit the festival website for full listings and to book tickets.
