GARETH LOCKRANE BIG BAND
Sunday 30 September, Evening Session, 9pm
Gareth Lockrane is the UK’s premier jazz flautist, a prolific and versatile musician who leads a number of his own small groups plus his acclaimed
contemporary big band.
Gareth’s big band is the fruition of all his musical interests and is influenced, among others, by Gil Evans, Maria Schneider, Kenny Wheeler, Basie and Mingus. The star-studded band blends heavy grooves and luscious orchestrations to spectacular effect.
‘The lean and hungry Lockrane is the most exciting and inventive instrumentalist in the country.’ Jack Massarick, London Evening Standard
