Preview: The Door Mouse Quintet @ Pizza Express

Where: Pizza Express Jazz Club. 10 Dean Street. London, W1D 3RW.
When: 27 July. Doors open 7:PM. Performance 8:30PM.Cost: £15.
Featuring: Jeremy Kahn, Shlomo, Jasper Høiby, Adam Waldmann, Katie Elliott, Pat Davey, Aisling Lavelle, Helen Burnett. Two exciting names in British jazz, Jasper Høiby and Adam Waldmann will feature in the hotly-tipped new act ‘The Door Mouse Quintet’. The group, led by Jeremy Kahn, meet for a special performance alongside world-renowned beat boxer Shlomo on 27 July in what promises to be an unforgettable evening of cutting-edge performance and improvisation. The gig, at the Pizza Express, Dean Street Jazz Club will act as both a showcase and as a warm-up concert for a forthcoming tour planned for 2012. The gig will feature music from the album Door Mouse, which consists exclusively of material written by Jeremy Kahn. Jeremy will be joined on stage by his son Shlomo, possibly the world’s finest human beatboxers, and the first ever World Loopstation Champion. Shlomo, an Artist In Residence at the Southbank, has performed with a diverse range of artists such as DJ Yoda, Bjork, Martha Wainwright, Hexstatic, Portico Quartet, Jarvis Cocker, and Mad Professor and sparks will fly as he performs alongside the internationally renowned Jasper Høiby whose recent album Alive with his trio Phronesis won Jazz Wise and Mojo’s ‘Jazz Album of the Year’ awards, and Adam Waldmann who has been described as "a young master in the making" by Time Out and was selected last year by world renowned Jazz and World Music promoters Serious for their groundbreaking initiative Take Five. The Door Mouse Quintet also features group co-founder and hotly-tipped flautist and pianist Katie Elliott, who many will know from the Under the Edge Jazz Club, and Pat Davey who is well known for his collaborations with The F-ire Collective, plus guests.

If you're in town next Wednesday then this must be The Place to be.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
