Arnolfini - est 1961

FRONTRUNNERS Contemporary Jazz and New Music
Wednesday 3 April 8.00pm
Creative Jazz Orchestra
Elephant Falling
Returning to Arnolfini after their sell-out gig with John Taylor in February the renowned Creative Jazz Orchestra, under their ever-inventive leader Nick Purnell (in the line-up as ‘nerves of steel’), here present an entertaining and adventurous project based on imaginary cartoon characters including Herman Hz the sound detective who’ll be searching for tonality (should it go missing) and the Underwater Kitty who simply loves to swim with the fishes. Meanwhile the piece Who is King highlights the struggle between one drummer and his drum machine. In a crack ensemble, including young bloods Julian Arguelles on saxophone and lyrical pianist Huw Warren, this 10-piece band are intent on bashing down any musical boundaries that might just have the
nerve to get in their way!
