Sat 29 May | 7.30pm | holding hands
Presented in partnership with Lancaster Jazz Festival
holding hands is a new octet co-led by two Norwich musicians – trumpeter Chris Dowding and saxophonist Rob Milne.
Divided equally between Norwich and London, the octet features some of the most exciting improvisers in the UK, including saxophonist Dee Byrne (Entropi), trombonist Raph Clarkson (World Service Project) and tuba player Ben Higham (Brass Monkeys).
Chris and Rob’s writing for the octet explores the political and cultural relationship between the UK and the US orchestrating audio samples from prominent figures and there’s room for compositions from the rest of the band too.
The music explores lush brass textures and minimalist vibraphone patterns, merged together by electronic offerings from across the group.
