We welcome two of the most insightful musicians of Jazz, pianist Marc Copland and guitarist John Abercrombie, to Band on the Wall.

It is more than 30 years since a John Abercrombie group last included piano, but his and pianist Marc Copland’s association spans more than 40 years. Both men are virtuosos, but subtle, mostly quiet. Copland’s pianism is decidedly poetic; his uncanny ‘touch’ and his skill with pedals are widely admired by other keyboardists. Speaking of his ‘unlikely’ alliance with John Abercrombie, Marc Copland says, ‘by listening carefully and working together, it's possible to get stunning effects, textures, colours, sounds.’

The recordings are classic examples of the quiet, calm art of communication practiced at the highest level. The musical meeting of these two contemporary jazz maestros has a wonderfully organic feel. It is comparable to the finest chamber music. The pieces shimmer with multifarious shades and meanings. They are small sound sculptures of artful transience.

Did you know that our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open beforehand for delicious food and drinks?
