John Surman and Bergen Big Band – Another Sky: 'Surman at Seventy' residency
LONDON Kings Place (Hall One)
90 York Way
The Surman at Seventy residency continues with this concert.
John Surman's collaboration with this big band of massive energy and spirit has produced a recording of original music. Another Sky provides a tremendous setting for the band’s fine range of individual soloists – which are a highlight - as are Surman’s own rumbustious excursions on baritone and soprano saxophones.
Bergen Big Band has an impressive pedigree over two decades – a myriad of projects include playing with jazz icons Phil Woods and Joe Henderson, as well as innovative forces such as Maria Schneider, Terje Rypdal and Dino Saluzzi. The massively influential Norwegian singer Karin Krog will join Surman and the band on stage as a special guest.
