Thurs 28th September - The Will Butterworth Quartet

Admission - £10

Will Butterworth quartet launches his new album 'The Nightingale and the Rose', out on Jellymould Jazz. Based on Oscar Wilde’s famous children’s story, this music started life as a solo piano composition for a story book, and has since grown into a full, vibrant and dynamic quartet suite. This suite has six sections that segue into one another, retelling Wilde’s story of love and sacrifice, and following the plight of the Nightingale until her final song is performed. The quartet uses these melodies as starting points for improvisation, so that no two performances are the same. A reading of the text will also take place.
