Each episode of Moment’s Notice showcases five of London’s leading lights in the art of spontaneous composition.

Two one-time-only bands (In 90% of instances, the musicians will be playing together - if not meeting - for the very first time) play fully-improvised, 40-minute sets in front of a live audience. The format is duo set, trio set before the night concludes with a combo quintet set.

Moment’s Notice is unique in its bringing together of musicians from all corners of the scene: line-ups are as inclusive, startling & open-minded as the music borne out of each episode, every one of which is curated by the event creator and organiser, music photographer George Nelson. Shared music principles, not genre association or surface aesthetics is the adhesive that holds these combinations together.

In its 22 episodes to date, Moment’s Notice has featured the likes of Shabaka Hutchings, Angel Bat Dawid, Hyelim Kim, Cassie Kinoshi, ESKA, Laura Jurd, Moses Boyd, Byron Wallen, Theon Cross, Oscar Jerome, Alice Zawadzki, Jason Yarde, Ashley Henry, Xhosa Cole, Sarathy Korwar, Anthony Joseph, Tom Skinner and Rosie Turton.

The event returns to AMP Studios for Episode 10, Season 2 on Saturday, November 19th. Mouthwatering duo of Alto Saxophone colossus Nathaniel Facey (Empirical, Moses Boyd Exodus) and Keys wiz Robert Mitchell (Courtney Pine, Kaidi Tatham). The trio consists of steller double bass player Rio Kai (SEED, Nerija), outstanding Brazilian percussionist Adriano Adewale (Robert Wyatt, Emilia Mårtensson) and an unbilled SPECIAL GUEST.
