Concert Series 2019-20
“...ISQ are a melting pot of genres – jazz, pop, acoustic and experimental – which all blend together to entrancing effect...” - Time Out London Critics Choice
ISQ are a critically-acclaimed post-jazz/Art Pop quartet from London featuring Irene Serra (vocals - Wynton Marsalis, Norma Winstone, US3), Richard Sadler (double bass - founding member of the Neil Cowley Trio), Naadia Sheriff (piano - Yazz Ahmed, Hermeto Pascoal) and Chris Nickolls (drums - Andy Sheppard, Jean Touissant).
Described as "EST with vocals", this crossover jazz outfit embrace “the song” as an improvisational framework to move into different – sometimes unexpected - sonic directions and moods.
ISQ will be releasing and touring their much-anticipated third album this Autumn and into early 2020. It is in a live setting that these musicians really show their jazz roots, expanding the framework of the songs and relishing in the musical spontaneity and interplay. Hear them when you get the chance.
There will be a 20-minute interval during this event. Refreshments will be available to purchase in the Windsor Building Foyer.
