SATURDAY 18 JANUARY - 8:00 PM
FEATURING EMILIA MÅRTENSSON
After a three year hiatus, MOBO Award winning Kairos 4tet return to present their fourth album, delving deeper in to the art of song. Regarded as one of a kind, Kairos 4tet bridge the gap between classic and contemporary; the jazz orbit and folk lineage; with ferocious grooves, searching improvisations and melodies that linger long after the music stops.
The band play the distinctive compositions of saxophonist Adam Waldmann, who has been described as a young master in the making by Time Out and a precociously talented composer and player by AllAboutJazz.com. The band features Parliamentary Jazz ‘Vocalist of the Year’ award winner Emilia Mårtensson.
Under the leadership of saxophonist Adam Waldmann, Kairos 4tet have found a melodious medium between traditional Jazz and the forward facing nature of the great young British Jazz groups. The band’s compositions are open and accessible, but there’s no compromise when it comes to intuitive, intelligent playing and adventurous arrangements. The Mercury Prize
