5556503Zoe Rahman And The Inner City Ensemble
DateSunday 22nd October 2017
DescriptionPianist and composer Zoe Rahman has firmly established herself as one of the brightest stars on the contemporary jazz scene. A vibrant and highly individual artist, her style is deeply rooted in jazz yet it reflects her classical background, British/Bengali heritage and her very broad musical taste. Known for her powerful technique, wide-ranging imagination and exuberant performances, she has become a highly sought-after musician, recently working with the likes of George Mraz, Courtney Pine and Jerry Dammers' Spatial AKA Orchestra. She is a winner of the prestigious UK Parliamentary Jazz Award, and has been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize. For this third edition of the Jazz Directors Series, Rahman is performing with the Inner City Ensemble, an evolving ten-piece group of the UK's most promising emerging professional musicians, selected through an open call application process. The ensemble will play material written by Rahman for a Guildhall School of Music and Drama project, plus new material never previously performed live. The ensemble will include piano, double bass, drums, flute, clarinet, trumpet, alto and tenor saxophone, trombone, and tuba. The Jazz Directors Series is a two-year residency and touring project which brings together emerging UK professional jazz musicians with an internationally revered Jazz Director. Each edition comprises of a four-day residency produced by Brighter Sound and a corresponding tour of live concerts produced by Band on the Wall. Each tour is a collaboration between Band on the Wall and four independent jazz promoters based across the North of England who will be mentored by the established regional promoter and producer Root Music. The residency musicians form the Inner City Ensemble, a changing group of emerging professionals who will apply for the positions identified by each Jazz Director with the support of Brighter Sound and Jazz North.
