Abdullah Ibrahim – Ekaya + New Trio
15 Nov 2014
LONDON Southbank Centre / Queen Elizabeth Hall
SE1 8 XX
One of the great small bands in jazz today plays its first London concert in some years.
The consummate solo skills of the leader Branford Marsalis – immersed in the jazz tradition, but completely of today – interacts with the free-wheeling rhythm section of virtuoso pianist Joey Calderazzo, master bassist Eric Revis and the precocious young drummer Evan Sherman to make music that is packed with surprising twists and turns and a genuine sense of excitement in its telepathic interplay.
'A prolific and acclaimed jazzman.' (Rolling Stone)
'An estimable soloist.' (The New York Times)
