29 Oct – NICK COSTLEY WHITE guitar & HANNES RIEPLER guitar
Long time musical comrades Nick Costley-White and Hannes Riepler make their public debut with an evening of swinging songbook classics alongside contemporary jazz standards by the likes of Joe Henderson and Wayne Shorter. Having both studied at the Guildhall School of Music, Nick and Hannes have been riffing off one another for over 10 years on the London jazz scene. Now living as neighbours in Hackney they’ve had the opportunity to collaborate and combine their joint enthusiasm for the tradition of jazz guitar and it’s progression in contemporary music.
“I was struck by the sheer presence and melodic heft and ease of Nick Costley-White’s playing. The ideas flow naturally, the sound is gorgeous, there’s just nothing missing” Sebastian Scotney, London Jazz News
“Riepler has a penchant for grooving, catchy, but heartfelt, tunes, as can be heard on his recent album Wild Life. The riff-based ‘Gillett Square Blues’ .... has a Miles-esque feel to it and sounds like it might have made the cut on one of that trumpeter’s stronger electric-period albums." Graham Boyd, Jazzwise
