The Stefania Arcieri Ensemble

Stefania Arcieri on vocals, compositions, Gareth Lockrane on flutes, Sam Leak on piano, Andrea Di Biase on double bass, Jon Scott on drums.

The Stefania Arcieri Ensemble is a project which brings together some of the most creative and impressive artists on the London scene and beyond: profound and distinct personalities meet harmoniously developing unique sonorities.

With this band Stefania will be presenting some music from the album "Views - Shapes and Hues of Some Impressions" which introduces her as a singer as well as a composer. The album includes different ensemble combinations, from quartet to septet, reflecting wide stylistic multiplicities, blending various sounds, hues, dynamics, mainly inspired by contemporary jazz & latin worlds.

"Views" describes an intense encounter between harmonies, textures and perspectives, expressed through a multicoloured mixture of timbres. Here the role of the singer is particular: the voice melts with the other instruments in the arranged sections; moreover all the sounds move from moments of bright blooming energy to others of grace and intimacy, proceeding between vigorous melodic lines and elegant dreamy paths. Eveything is enriched by the sensitivity and singular flair of every artist in the band.

This extraordinary line-up will deliver a fervent and thrilling performance, for a night full of exciting improvisations, interplay, uniqueness.

Her smooth but powerful vocals have been heard in a variety of high profile venues and festivals such as The 606 club, Bulls Head, Pizza Express Dean St and Canary Wharf Jazz Festival and she has recorded an impressive 4 albums under her name for the well respected Catalan label Temps Records.

Adam Glasser's SA & Beyond - The Jazz of Hugh Masekela

Although the late South African trumpeter's music legacy spans a truly pan-African range of styles and grooves, keyboardist and harmonica player Adam Glasser's latest project focuses on compositions associated with township jazz from the iconic album 'Jazz Epistles Verse 1' up to the present day.

The choice of title is deliberate since many of the most well known township jazz material made famous by Hugh was not actually written by him but written for him such as Blues for Hughie composed by South African alto sax legend Kippie Moeketsi.

The band lineup features saxophonist Jason Yarde who like Adam had a long personal association with Masekela as well as Steve Watts on bass, who last year toured South Africa with two other icons of SA jazz (Tete Mbambisa and Barney Rachabane). The line up is completed with the outstanding Mike Outram on guitar and drummer Tim Giles who played often with the Township Comets and Pinise Saul.

Currently one of the few London based jazz ensembles explicitly exploring South African repertoire - not to be missed!

Features:

Adam Glasser - harmonica/keyboard Jason Yarde - sax, Mike Outram - guitar, Steve Watts - bass and Tim Giles - drums
