Bonington favourite Gilad Atzmon will be featuring music from his latest and highly acclaimed album Refuge. Expect hard-hitting, urban electro-acoustic jazz from Atzmon's superb ensemble. Combining bebop with middle-eastern influences, new music and electronica, the Orient House Ensemble creates a musical landscape like no other outfit around on the UK jazz scene today.
"It's not where you take things from that matters, but where you take them to, and the Orient House Ensemble is finding its voice in an increasingly subtle blend of East and West, that's brutal and beautiful."
Kathryn Shackleton, BBC Music Magazine
There will be a short set from Sarah Gillespie of no longer than 30 minutes supporting Gilad. Both Gilad and Asif Sirkis feature on her album. Visit her web site at www.sarahgillespie.com for more information. Gilad will play two sets of 50 minutes each minimum.
