This week at LUME we have an excellent double bill:
– HENRY SPENCER AND JUNCTURE –
Led by trumpeter/composer Henry Spencer, the band performs original compositions that take on influences from a range of genres such as jazz, rock and minimalism. The compositions are written by Henry Spencer.
‘The most exciting band…engaging…these were serious artists who were refreshing and absorbed in their music-making. Definitely one of the highlights of the weekend.’ (missgivans.co.uk at Marlborough Jazz Festival)
‘Henry Spencer’s music had a unique focus and quality rarely experienced from others of his generation.’
‘Originals with real meaning’
(Paul Pace, Ronnie Scott’s, The Spice of Life)

– CARNIVAL RAIN –
A warm summer evening, the air heavy as the sun sets and the sky begins to close…
Carnival rain is a collaboration between SE Collective members Alam Nathoo (Sax) & Matt Ridley (Bass), along with trumpeter/composer Joe Morris and F-ire Collective stalwart and Oriole bandleader/guitarist Jonny Phillips. Drawing on Tango, Flamenco and Jazz as influences, the band combine the subtlety of a chamber ensemble with the vibrance of latin street performers.
