JAZZ LIAISONS brings together performers from both the jazz/contemporary and classical worlds to present a programme that will deliver both reflective ballades and racy up-tempo jazz-classical music. The program will be anchored by the pioneering Suite for cello and jazz piano trio, a large-scale work by renowned French jazz pianist and composer Claude Bolling. This work was the result of Bolling’s collaboration with classical cellist Yo-Yo Ma, and is a mix of baroque elegance and modern swing.
Boaz Modman is back by popular demand after last year’s appearance in Bridges’ launch, Diversity. Spinning sounds from throat-singing and instruments of his own invention - the boogiballs and his adaptation of the digeridoo, the tuberidoo – Boaz will be joined by Brenna to create an improvised work combining the mesmerizing timbres of these instruments.
The other work featured in this programme is Stuart Greenbaum’s An Angel Bowed Backwards, inspired by a poem of the same name by Ross Baglin, and lends a moment of depth and reflection amongst the lighter outer works in the programme. Nevertheless, it is still driven with Greenbaum’s typical rhythmic Minimalism which is influenced by contemporary/jazz music.
