This week we’re back at Hundred Crows Rising for a double bill with two great bands…
NICK COSTLEY-WHITE TRIO
The Nick Costley White Trio is a new group which Nick uses to explore his own contemporary jazz compositions and arrangements.
The trio features Nick on guitar, who’s recent performing credits include the London Jazz Orchestra, Martin Speake trio & Gareth Lockrane quartet. Nick is joined by Mobo award winning drummer Jon Scott (Kairos Quartet, Dice Dactory, Monocled Man). The trio is completed by one of the most in demand bass players of his generation, Tom McCredie (Reuben Fowler Big Band, Keith Tippett).
Compass is an acoustic project fusing influences from global music with modern jazz. Using infectious grooves, colourful melodies and group improvisation, the band takes influences from flamenco, choro, cuban and folk music and many other styles to perform original compositions with a unique sound. Between them, the band members have won various awards and played extensively around London, the rest of the UK and abroad, and through this collaborative project are exploring a new and intimate musical setting.
