Jade Quartet  -  Thu Mar 07, 2019  |  07:45 pm
Admission £ 10.00 ( £ 8.00 concessions)
JADE is a new project from trumpeter and composer Nick Malcolm. The group starts with original compositions influenced by the AACM, J Dilla, Burial, and English church music, and then deconstructs through sampling and contemporary improvisation. It features leading bassist Will Harris, Birmingham based drummer and producer Ric Yarborough, and Get The Blessing saxophonist Jake McMurchie.

Nick, who has made a big impression with several previous Jazz North East appearances, is one of the foremost musicians in UK contemporary jazz and free improvisation. He has had a gig broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz on 3, released two albums to critical acclaim (a third is on its way) and toured his music nationally including at the London and Manchester jazz festivals. He has worked with a range of cutting-edge musicians including Alexander Hawkins, Olie Brice, Corey Mwamba, Hannah Marshall and Mark Sanders, and - revealing the breadth of his talent - also performs regularly with UK folk legend Eliza Carthy in her Wayward Band.
