Bridge Music Jazz Presents Phoenician Blinds, London
Weekly Jazz Series from jazz promotion body Bridge Music featuring UK and international touring bands and original music from Scottish based jazz ensembles.
Based out of London, Phoenician Blinds are a jazz-leaning instrumental quartet with blends of straight-ahead jazz, hip-hop and cinematic soundscapes.
'It's the classic jazz quartet in a slightly different light. We work in an unusually organic way both live and in the studio, even in jazz terms. The tunes are mostly written at the piano and then brought to the studio where no one is given any musical guidelines, let alone any written music. We just roll and see what happens which gives the tunes a fresh feel and a sense that everyone really is meeting at the centre.' Influenced by the likes of Esbjörn Svensson Trio, Robert Glasper and Avishai Cohen, this is music sure to make you groove and contemplate the essence of soulful music.
