Amongst the shows over the next seven days, Danish saxophonist, Julie Kjær joins forces with the English powerhouse rhythm section of Steve Noble and John Edwards. Experimenting with rhythms and sounds the trio pushes their instruments to the limits, blending the classic elements of jazz with new sounds.
This week’s digital release is a duo set from flutist, composer and educator Nicole Mitchell (making her London debut at OTO) and the great drummer Mark Sanders. Together they create a strikingly sparse and minimal sound, but one which is no less full of joyous melodic hooks and grooves reminiscent of a stripped back Art Ensemble.
New shows announced this week include the return of The Wire Salon in the form of an audience with Val Wilmer, plus residencies from Träd, Gräs och Stenar and faUSt.
