Bridge Music Jazz Presents Pericopes+1 New York

Fri 11 May 2018 

Weekly Jazz Series from jazz promotion body Bridge Music featuring UK and international touring bands and original music from Scottish based jazz ensembles. Pericopes was born as a saxophone-piano duo in Italy in 2007 by Emi Vernizzi and Alex Sgobbio, releasing three albums, winning the Umbria Jazz Contest , Italian TopJazz award and Padova Carrarese Prize before collaborating with American drummer Nick Wight. The trio extension is called Pericopes+1 and are actively recording and touring since 2014. Just over two years after releasing their debut trio album, These Human Beings (Alfa Music), Pericopes+1 return with an inventive and compelling release, Legacy (Auand Records) in 2018. Legacy finds Pericopes+1 embracing a new musical palette inspired by alternative and popular culture of the past several decades: dynamic grooves, rhythmic focus, Rhodes and new effects enhance clever compositional devices without distorting their acoustic sensibilities. As the title suggests, the new album pays respect to the iconoclastic artists who bravely followed their creative vision in light of extreme uncertainty. The trio begins a series of 3 Album Release Tours between December 2017 and May 2018, totalling 50+ concerts including: Parma Jazz Frontiere Festival and Dekadenz (IT), A-Trane (DE), Pizza Express (UK) and Opus Jazz Club (HU) . “Pericopes is a cleverly unorthodox trio, with an aesthetic outside of strict jazz principles.” Musica Jazz (IT) “All songs exhibit power and intention, a good indication for this young group.” Downbeat Magazine (USA) “An original, stylish, well-balanced contribution to contemporary jazz” Austrian News, ORF (AT) “The unity of the trio is crisp and clean” Jazz Views (UK) Video: Legacy (2018) EPK   8pm £7/£6 Booking Reserved Seating Should you wish to guarantee seating, you can book and pay online, £7 per person.
