THE ALEX CURTIS QUARTET WITH DAISY CHUTE FEATURING THOMAS GOULD ON VIOLIN
152 King's Road
For this EFG London Jazz Festival Concert, pianist/composer Alex Curtis leads a stellar line up, comprising of Daisy Chute on vocals, Thomas Gould on violin, Kevin Glasgow on bass and Sophie Alloway on drums. The group will be performing music from Alex's forthcoming album 'Patterns, habits and Changes.'
Alongside this original material, the group will also play fresh arrangements of standards and music by the likes of the Police and the Beatles, all with a decidedly contemporary edge. Drawing on a whole range of influences, the band demonstrates outstanding musicianship and very strong collective writing skills. Expect highly original arrangements/compositions, heavy grooves and plenty of exciting group interaction. Dasiy Chute is the real deal, equally at home singing in diverse settings such as on Radiohead's latest album, 'A moon shaped pool,' or platinum selling vocal quartet 'All Angels,' and her jazz skills have been lauded by many, such as the late great Mark Murphy, jazz singer and six time Grammy nominee, who said “Daisy, like Barbra Streisand, has a fully developed vocal talent at a young age. This girl has the gift of communication.”
