Line-up: IVO NEAME piano; GEORGE CROWLEY tenor sax; TOM FARMER bass; JAMES MADDREN drums
Over the last ten years, Ivo Neame has led ensembles that have performed all over Europe at notable jazz festivals and venues including the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam, Elb Jazz Festival in Hamburg and the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. The music is an exploration of contrast and represents an ongoing quest to house multiple styles and influences under one roof.
This varied mix of sonic landscapes springs from a desire to find emotional resonances with audiences in as many ways as possible. The styles of the pieces range from serene, calm and reflective atmospheres to intense, high-octane polyrhythmic grooves. Improvising is at the heart of the band’s approach to dealing with all these musical structures, thus ensuring the fresh uniqueness of each performance.
“That Neame is one of the most interesting jazz pianists of his generation may be clear. That he is getting better and better is too. The 10 years of almost constant being on the road withbands has given him a prominent role in the front line of British jazz.” WRITTEN IN JAZZ.
