Jazz at Karamel: Then and Now

Chris Biscoe (Baritone), Allison Neale (Alto), Colin Oxley (Guitar), Dave Whitford (Bass), Matt Fishwick (Drums)

New explorations of the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standard material recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind, this new band evokes the spirit of these classic recordings while giving free reign to the personalities of the musicians.

The band’s first CD, Then and Now, has received great reviews and the group is establishing a national reputation for its fresh and spontaneous approach to established jazz repertoire.

The band have performed at French Festivals with Didier Levallet, will be touring with Inner Space, and have arranged gigs with Blythe Spirits and The Wobbly Rail 5. They have produced a CD with Roger Turner, and will be gigging around England with Two of a Mind, with the performances in Welwyn on March 25th being recorded live for broadcast on Jazz Now, BBC Radio 3, scheduled for July 23rd 2018.

“…perfect rapport, and a positively uncanny grasp of this elusive idiom”, Dave Gelly, The Observer

A collaboration between two of the UK’s finest jazz artists Barry Green-piano and Brigitte Beraha-voice, Babelfish also features legends Chris Laurence-double bass and Paul Clarvis-drums/percussion.

Between them they have played or recorded with artists as diverse as Bobby Wellins, BBC Concert Orchestra, Evan Parker, Kenny Wheeler and Stevie Wonder.

Their albums ‘Babelfish’ and ‘Chasing Rainbows’ received rave reviews and this gig marks the first concert of their 20-date UK tour which will culminate into the recording of their much anticipated third album: a journey into their favourite books through the vehicles of jazz, latin, classical, folk and improvised music.

“It’s a pleasure to enter the original music language of this band: a world of playfulness and beauty, where anything could happen- you’re caught up in their sense of mystery and imagination.” LondonJazz

Support by Ben Holland , Samuel Nicholson and Gabriel Moreno

SAMUEL NICHOLSON

Samuel is a 25 year old London-based singer/songwriter hailing from Edinburgh. Currently at the mercy of the locals in any open mic night he can find he is most happy with a guitar in his hand and his eyes at the ceiling. Often defaulting to melancholy he offers an emotive perspective through resonant guitar parts and weathered vocals, throwing finesse out the window for honesty. Released on the 19th August a couple of years ago, his debut record entitled \’If You Be My\’ (which he is very, very excited about) offers a raw introduction to not only his inner conflicts but equally his take on the world that moves before him.

BEN HOLLAND

Ben was born in Carlisle, in the North near to the border of
Scotland. He now lives and writes songs in London, just South of the river.
Leaving school at sixteen, Ben went to work in several of the
factories around Carlisle. During this period, Ben discovered the
songs of Bob Dylan. Instantly taken with his music, he spent his
shifts in the factory with smuggled ear phones he pretended were ear plugs, listening and studying Dylan’s giant songbook. Evenings were spent learning these songs on an old acoustic guitar he borrowed from his uncle.
Along with many early blues and folk standards Ben knew many Dylan’s songs by heart. His own songs came soon after, and now writing and performing them is his sole occupation.
Over recent years Ben has supported artists like Joan Armatrading in major concert venues across Sweden, Denmark, Germany, the UK and Ireland. He also regularly plays with the ‘Ben Holland Band’- usually marathon several hour sets that are becoming well known must-see fixtures on the London circuit.

GABRIEL MORENO

Gabriel Moreno is a published poet and singer songwriter from Gibraltar. His songs fuse Mediterranean rhythms with Indie/folk arpeggios performed with a classical guitar. Based on his literary publications, Gabriel versifies lyrics of Love, loss and desire, which are transmitted in sheer emotional nakedness. Having played with multiple bands in Gibraltar, Italy, Peru and Spain, Gabriel Moreno started his solo project in the UK in 2010. Since then he has become an important part of the Alternative Folk scene in London, perfroming all over town and hosting acclaimed music nights at The Betsey Trotwood, Jonestown, Karamel Restaurant and other poetry and music venues.  He also has 8 collections of poetry published in Spanish and English and released his debut album with Amber Records in 2015. He is currently working on a new album and a new book of poetry based on poetry in the war of Afghanistan.

LONDON, April 20, 2017 — “For fans of Frank Turner, Against Me!, Mumford & Sons and Bob Dylan, there is the joy of We Bless This Mess. The 5-piece from Porto is in fact a solo project by Nelson Graf Reis that takes the punk approach to folk music or equally, plays punk songs according to the ‚less is more‘ philosophy. Nelson’s We Bless This Mess is all about expressing positivity and carpe diem: “We breathe, we are alive. This is the greatest gift.”

60Minuten.net (Netherlands)

Wushta’s joyful live sets mix Lo-fi, Synth Pop and Electronica. The former drummer of Portuguese punk band ‘BlackJackers” has swapped the sticks for keyboards, drum machines and a bass guitar, inciting the audience to celebrate life in the here and now.

International Sound Invasion showcases upcoming musicians from abroad in London. Now more than ever, our purpose is to enrich and strengthen the dialog between different cultures and backgrounds that create this diverse and colorful city, by hosting music events that bring together locals and foreigners in joy, with open minds and hearts.
