Dev Res V – Dissolutions, performance 1: ‘chamber jazz’ quartet
February 25 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$10
I’m very pleased to be a recipient of Lebowskis Development Residency V.
There will be three gigs, each two months apart.
My project, Dissolutions aims to develop ground first broken by Keith Jarrett’s European quartet in the mid 1970’s. The ensemble aims to marry the thematic, harmonic, and melodic sensibilities of music of the European art music tradition with free improvisation and the rhythmic and textural approach of the jazz tradition.
Performance 1: ‘chamber jazz’ quartet
This performance will present a number of short pieces utilising a modern jazz style and formal structures. Thematic material will draw on classical gestures and contemporary harmony. See Theme and Variations, and The Declaration within the accompanying playlist for early examples of this concept.
The ensemble will consist of:
Timothy Franklin – saxophone
Joseph O’Connor – piano
Isaac Gunnoo – bass
Hugh Harvey – drums
We’re playing the second set – Atienne Bakker (the other residency recipient) is playing the first set.
