“’Kind Of Blue’ meets The Cinematic Orchestra …With hypnotic grooves, and a meditative slow-build to his solos, Halsall’s music is saturated in a life-affirming glow” Time Out
“Grooving through time on the spiritual sunship’ Mojo Magazine
Manchester based trumpeter, composer, arranger and band-leader Matthew Halsall is one of the rising stars of European Jazz. With a label showcasing exciting young talent such as Mercury Music Prize nominees GoGo Penguin. Halsall has already made quite an impact, not just with his performance, but also his discovery and knowledge of new music.
Featuring his hard-grooving, eastern-tinged Gondwana Orchestra featuring Rachael Gladwin (harp), Jordan Smart (saxophones), Taz Modi (piano), Gavin Barras (double bass) and Luke Flowers (drums) as well as very special guest vocalist Josephine Oniyama, this show at Union Chapel will be another brilliant insight into the Gondwana label and the musicians that drive it.
They’ll be playing music from their forthcoming album, released in September 2015 as well as last year’s acclaimed release ‘When The World Was One’ which was named as the iTunes Jazz Album of the Year 2014. Join us down at one of London’s most beautiful venues and grab one of the limited Early Bird tickets on sale at 10am Friday 16th January 2015.
