The evening begins with a solo performance on double bass by John Edwards. A John Edward’s solo is a precious opportunity to really hear the full range of his skill, sensibility and wit. Because John so often plays with exceptional musicians it is perhaps rare to be able to hear every single sound he makes: once the music reaches blast-off we know all about his phenomenal energy & passion. His solo work allows him to reveal other sides to himself – not just dynamite John. This is a chance to hear scrupulous & brilliant musician at the top of his game.
Noel Taylor, clarinets
Ulf Mengersen, double bass
Assaf Fleischmann, piano
The ‘Lizard Brain’ refers to the most primitive part of the human mind – with its raw, unfiltered responses to reality. This Berlin-London trio have performed together in both cities, developing with each other a deep musical intuition, reacting to each other with close to zero latency. It’s partly the ‘lizard brain’ in action but also its the opposite – a sense of colaboration and empathy that swings from saturated sound to passages of delicate lyricism and on to pulsating free form that escalates to fresh peaks of intensity.
