Bebop Spoken There

Immanuel Wilkins: "I'm against the notion of telling a story through lyrics. Dialogue or language can take away from the musical meaning. Words can do a disservice." - (The Hot House Jazz Guide January 19, 2021)

The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Preview: OFFGRID Presents The Unthanks + Thomas Dixon Trio @ Cobalt Studios CIC - Feb. 14

(Press release)
Sublime acoustic music, limited places, candlelight, lanterns, no power at all, cash only. No whirrs, whizzes or distractions – just distilled music in an intimate environment.

Following the success of our first OFFGRID we are delighted to let you know that The Unthanks have agreed to take to the candlelit stage and grace us with their crystal clear unaccompanied harmony and beautiful, magical and at times haunting stories.

Supported by Thomas Dixon on saxophone, Ben Fitzgerald on drums and Tom Alcorn on trumpet for a completely improvised, acoustic set. There are no rules, no boundaries. Anything could happen.

The above press release says it all - or does it? The Unthanks may be a recognised folk band but there is a lot of jazz feeling in their harmonies and instrumental breaks and their music crosses the genres without anyone getting hurt.

The Thomas Dixon Trio is a different kettle of fish but equally as interesting. All in all this promises to be a Valentine's night to remember!
