Solstice Jazz Sextet
Wednesday 7th June, Beldam Hall, 7.45pm
Solstice is a collaboration between some of the foremost bandleaders and composers emerging from the thriving east London music scene.
Having toured with their own groups extensively throughout the UK, Europe and some other planets with their own projects and artists such as Kenny Wheeler, Tim Garland, Andy Sheppard, Gilad Atzmon, Dave Binney, Django Bates, Jasper Hoiby and Ivo Neame, they have now come together united by a shared love of music and food to write and eat collectively. They have a unified sound drawing on influences from Brazil, New York, and France, and from artists such as Hermeto Pascoal, Edward Simon and Pierre de Bethmann, whilst retaining a uniquely British identity.
