Trio VD return to london after their sell-out vortex show. This is their LAST London date before August so come down and jump around!
AMAZING support from Nitkowski plus a very special guest solo spot.
There is plenty of bracing music to be heard from the new generation of UK jazz, nowhere more so than in Leeds, home to the LIMA collective and its standard bearers trioVD. Guitarist Chris Sharkey, saxophonist Christophe de Bézenac and drummer Chris Bussey are the three musicians unleashing a maelstrom of sonic energy that comes to rest somewhere between The Thing and Meshuggah. Their evolution has been uncompromising and quite old school, borne of marathon, stamina building rehearsals where labyrinthine rhythmic forms are committed to memory, all the better for their subsequent deconstruction. A storm rages, but there is plenty of detail, invention and musicality just beneath the surface. Confrontational, uninhibited and clever, their use of volatile materials is invigorating and their demonic humour is catching.
Nitkowski create powerful, complex music inspired by the likes of This Heat and Botch. Their Debut Album 'Chauffeurs' received 4 stars from Kerrang and was described as "...a mind-melting wealth of ideas"
THE NIGHT WILL KICK OFF WITH A SOLO SET FROM A SPECIAL GUEST TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY!
