Arnolfini - est 1961

Thursday 5 October 8.00pm
Dave Douglas
Charms of the Night Sky + The Tiny Bell Trio
Hailed as one of the most original instrumentalists and composers to emerge on the international jazz scene during the 1990s, the music of prolific and virtuoso New York trumpeter Dave Douglas has been described as ‘a wake-up call for the world of jazz’. His vision of jazz draws on the wide range of his enthusiasms, including world folk-music and classical music in particular. In this diverse double-bill Douglas brings us Charms of the Night Sky, a chamber group with a European café feel and featuring violin, bass and accordion. This is followed by the Tiny Bell Trio which Douglas describes as a jazz-Balkan-improv ensemble – featuring Brad Schoeppach on guitar along with the brilliant young drummer Jim Black (last seen at Arnolfini with Ellery Eskelin). “……a gem of idiomatic, contemporary, acoustic jazz.” Mojo
