Beats & Pieces
LONDON Rich Mix
35-47 Bethnal Green Road
Ben Cottrell’s free-wheeling big band continues to occupy a very special place in today’s UK jazz scene, enthusing audiences throughout Europe amidst a succession of awards and critical acclaim.
Their Festival performance trails their tenth birthday in 2018, featuring new music reflecting the diversity of music that surrounds them, with Cottrell’s inspired writing influenced as much by Michael Jackson, Björk or Radiohead as by Duke Ellington, Gil Evans or Loose Tubes.
A big band for modern times
New music commissioned by the EFG London Jazz Festival as part of the 25 for 25 Commissions Programme.
