Horace Silver

February 12 2017 - The music of Horace Silver

Horace Silver was one of the most influential jazz musicians of his lifetime both as a pianist and composer particularly in the 'Hard Bop' style that he helped pioneer in the 1950s. Silver's legacy as a composer may be greater than as a pianist, because his works, many of which are jazz standards, continue to be performed and recorded worldwide. We have a fabulous quintet this month welcoming back Graeme Flowers who played last year at our Miles Davis Through The Years concert and for the first time saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos and drummer Chris Draper.

Vasilis Xenopoulos - sax

Michael Brecker

January 8 2017 - Tribute to Michael Brecker

Ten years ago following a two-and-a-half year illness, Michael Brecker passed away at the age of 57 in January 2007. As a result of his stylistic and harmonic innovations, Brecker is the most influential saxophonist of the last 30 years and is among the most studied contemporary instrumentalists in music schools throughout the world today. He is also a 13-time Grammy winner.

We pay tribute to him by playing selected tracks from his solo albums. This concert will feature self-confessed Brecker lover and brilliant tenor player Sean Freeman (Level 42).

Andrew McCormack

November 6 2016 Andrew McCormack - Solo Piano

Andrew McCormack is releasing his first solo piano album and we are delighted to host Andrew in an intimate setting at Riverside Arts Jazz. 

At one of his solo performances at Jazz In The Round’s Cockpit Theatre in London, pianist and composer Andrew McCormack commented, “I have a good reputation for collaborating with other artists. To play solo, I had to learn how to collaborate with myself!”.

Since then, the pianist has enjoyed a series of performances in the solo format, most notably at the internationally renowned Bimhuis in Amsterdam. As a bonus for McCormack’s admirers, Mezzo HD filmed the performance for broadcast throughout Europe.

In early 2016, McCormack embarked on a short tour of selected venues across the UK in a rare outing to play solo piano, to considerable critical acclaim.

McCormack is a composer and pianist at the pinnacle of his creative powers. Since bursting on to the scene in 2007 with his debut album, Telescope, McCormack has been the driving force behind A-list jazz artists Kyle Eastwood, Eric Alexander, Denys Baptiste and Jean Toussaint, as well as a host of home grown talent and has performed extensively around the world.

His latest trio album, First Light, was written and recorded in Brooklyn, New York, and represents McCormack’s ultimate achievement. In his composition and performing abilities, McCormack has been recognised by critics, musicians and the public--placing him comfortably and confidently on a worldwide stage.

Developing and honing a skillfully original approach to writing and performance in the jazz tradition, McCormack has captivated audiences with his emotional and expressive style--combined with a yearning, emotive aesthetic--which might be best described as quintessentially British. A three year stint living in New York City has added an even greater sense of swing, dynamic group interplay and a mesmeric live sound. The result is a world-class pianist and formidable composer, who has arguably earned a seat at the top of the jazz talent roster, anywhere on the globe.
