Clement Regert is not only one of the two partners who founded Off the Rails but a highly successful guitarist and band leader in his own right. His combo Wild Card is a melting pot of musical ideas, fusing urban rhythms and grooves with a Latin attitude. The music is dynamic, exuberant and flamboyant, appealing to jazz fans and the more mainstream-music lover alike. The core trio of Regert, organist Andrew Noble and drummer Sophie Alloway is augmented this evening by trumpet sensation Jackson Mathod. It was Mathod who set this year's High Tide Festival alight with his energetic, rabble-rousing style and fabulous playing. Book early - this one is going to sell out fast.
Following their highly successful appearance at this year's High Tide Festival, we are delighted to present the Emily Francis Trio, with their distinctively cinematic brand of prog-jazz. In case you are unfamiliar with this increasingly popular genre, it's a mixture of jazz and progressive rock, with brilliant other-worldly excursions into electronica and psychedelia on both piano and synthesizer. Trevor Boxall's bass and Jamie Murray's drums underpin the keyboards with dramatic rhythmic power. The whole experience is also intensely melodic, as you can hear from their recently-released album Luma.
This hard-working band combines the classic jazz funk of the 70s with the ultra-modern. Resolution 88 was formed by keyboard player and Incognito member Tom O’Grady, who was inspired by Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters, as well as the likes of The Crusaders, George Duke, Chick Corea and Lonnie Liston Smith. Since supporting Snarky Puppy at the 2013 London Jazz Festival, Tom and the band have worked with many other jazz greats and performed Herbie Hancock's classic Headhunters album live for their début at the famous New Morning club in Paris, followed by three late night shows at Ronnie Scott's. The line-up for Off the Rails consists of Tom O'Grady, Alex Hitchcock (tenor saxophone), Tiago Coimbra (bass), Richard Elsworth (drums) and Oli Blake (percussion).
With a very percussive approach to his instrument and his compositions, Gabriele Pribetti's music combines his love for jazz and improvisation with his classical training, leaving large spaces to interplay and free instantaneous composition. Gabriele studied classical percussion at the conservatory of his hometown of Trieste, Italy, before taking up the saxophone, which then became his main instrument. He moved to London in 2012, where he collaborates with a wide variety of musicians through his session work. These experiences have found their way into his music, which is full of hip grooves and rumbling synths. Some of his recent collaborators include Stormzy, Wizkid, Tiana Major9, Geko, Maleek Berry, Stefflon Don, Jordan Rakei, Daymé Arocena, WSTRN, Mostack, Burna Boy, Skepta, Sasha Keable, General Levy, Zion Train, Kamaal Williams, Jah9, Channel one sound system, Kiko Bun, Omar Lyefook, Congo Natty, Keith & Tex, Stylo G, The Pioneers, U-Roy and Vivian Jones. At Off the Rails he is joined by Cenk Esen (keys), Graeme Flowers (trumpet), Michele Montolli (bass) and Jamie Murray (drums).
