Live CD launch ‘Envoi’ - a homage to Miles Davis, distributed by NMC Recordings
In 2011 a day of improvised recording by Notes Inégales in Montreux was dedicated to Miles, feeling his energy echoing in the mountains. Featuring an extraordinary voicing by trumpeter Torbjörn Hultmark, this music is passionate, eloquent and then, melancholy - farewell, ‘envoi’.
Club Inégales opened at Euston in 2011, hosted by law firm Hodge, Jones and Allen, just after this recording, and since then there have been 21 seasons of events, always with guests who perform with resident band Notes Inégales, directed by Peter Wiegold. Guests have come from right across world traditons including Shri Sriram (India), Cheng Yu (China), Sura Susso (West Africa), Maya Youssef, (Syria), Lionel Loueke (jazz, New York), Horo Horomona (Maori shaman New Zealand) Chris Wood, Sam Lee and Leveret (British folk) the classical Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Benjamin Zephaniah and Will Self.
