Sharp, modern, steeped in tradition but also at the cutting edge, the music on the jazz label Blue Note remains beloved by jazz aficionados and casual listeners alike, decades after the label’s inception.
Blue Note’s golden era was the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, a period that marked the diversification on of the hard bop style into modal, post-bop and soul-jazz as heard in the recordings of Horace Silver, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan, Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and others.
Chris Ingham’s mighty repertory sextet REBOP return to the EFG London Jazz Festival giving new voice to these landmark Blue Note recordings, adding their own invention and improvisation. Pianist Chris Ingham is joined by
Paul Higgs – trumpet
Colin Watling - tenor saxophone
Kevin Flanagan — alto saxophone
Robert Rickenberg — double bass
George Double –drums.
“REBOP are a superb ensemble playing memorable music in a compelling style” – The Hoste of Jazz
Performance starts 8pm
Tickets: £30, £25 & £20
