LONDON Barbican / FreeStage (Level G)
Chaos Collective rounds up a new generation of British jazz.
On the menu: the expansive sense of space and texture from Blue-Eyed Hawk (2pm).
Pianist Elliot Galvin’s trio (3.30pm) are European Young Musicians of the Year, with a fine new CD, Dreamland. This performance is part of our 21 Commissions Programme.
Corrie Dick’s own band (5pm) has a strongly melodic feel, given an energy and dynamic by its leader and erstwhile Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year.
Laura Jurd’s HUMAN SPIRIT (6.30pm) can rock out or find moments of lyrical stillness.
