John Law’s Re-Creations
LONDON Crypt Camberwell
81 Camberwell Church Street
Pianist John Law has formed a new young band to create ‘new jazz standards’ – acoustic re- creations of music by everyone from Daft Punk to Adele.
Known mainly for his Congregation, playing his own original compositions, mixing jazz, and electronics, as well as classical projects, John Law (“One of the UK’s most imaginative and versatile jazz pianists”International Piano Magazine, 2014) has put together a stunning new group of young musicians, playing his arrangements of other people’s tunes. In a move away from electronics to this purely acoustic group, Re-Creations present music not just from the standard jazz repertoire but also tunes from pop and indie material (Beatles, Radiohead, Adele, Daft Punk). John Law has created a band which plays highly accessible melodic music and recognised tunes in extremely creative and interactive arrangements, simple and complex, with an emphasis on spontaneous interaction in a group of highly versatile young musicians.
