Jazz session with Chris Whiter

Chris Whiter has established himself as a prominent figure in the world of music, working with internationally-renowned artists such as Academy Award-Winner A R Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours), the Metropole Orchestra and NEA Jazz Master Dee Bridgewater. Chris’s layering of instrumental textures and rhythmic patterns have become a trademark of his compositions, with his works being featured at the BBC Proms and at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London.

This new venture blends an acoustic trio with live electronic effects, encapsulating the raw essence of musical freedom. With little discussion and no structures to define the outcome, the trio combine their freely improvised material with Whiter’s live electronics to produce serene and expansive atmospheric sound worlds in real time. The live album Encapsulation was released in early 2018, showcasing a three-part suite of the trio’s first recording session, featuring Vince Webb on piano and the multiple award-winning Riley Stone-Lonergan on tenor sax.

£12.50 (concessions available). Tickets available on the door or book online.
