The J-Word Presents...
Three of the most adventurous musicians are brought together for an evening of musical magic.
India’s Trilok Gurtu is widely regarded as the world’s greatest percussionist; his totally individual technique combines Indian tradition with many other styles to stunning effect.
“Gurtu seduced the auditorium with awesome percussion magic and pure theatre.” The Herald.
Lyrical Sardinian trumpeter Paolo Fresu has absorbed the influences of Miles Davies and Louis Armstrong into his own uniquely passionate voice.
“One of the great stars of European jazz.” The Independent.
Cuban pianist Omar Sosa fuses a wide range of jazz, world music and electronic elements with his native Afro-Cuban roots to create a completely fresh sound.
“Atmospheric, joyously physical, profound and playful, and always utterly absorbing” The Herald.
Guitarist Graeme Stephen, currently Scottish Jazz Award winner for innovation, provides the perfect foil for Fraser Fifield’s pipes, sax, whistles and electronics. Together they make a truly original sound, rooted in the Scottish folk tradition but exploratory by nature.
