Directions

If you want a statement of where the jazz mainstream is heading, look no further. 

David Murray’s daring, headlong saxophonics collide with the expansive piano improv of Geri Allen and the sheer subtlety and power of one of today’s key drummers, Terri Lyne Carrington  – music that digs deep into the jazz tradition, whilst sitting fair and square in the 21st century. The trio will perform music from their debut album, Perfection, out on Motéma in April 2016. 

‘The tension between form and freedom is obvious but never overstated, and the rapport within the trio is exceptionally strong’ (New York Times) 

London-based band Nérija open the show. Fresh from a stunning set opening for Ernest Ranglin, a chance to hear this tradition busting group, inspired by jazz, hip hop, Afrobeat and highlife.
