Brodie Jarvie Quintet
The music of Brodie Jarvie is a double-edged sword: masterfully composed pieces that can seem both simple, playful and intricate, whilst also serving as open platforms for pure interplay between the carefully chosen masterful musicians. His band is mesmerising and truly cosmopolitan, from all over Europe and as far afield as Mexico and South Korea, reflecting his breadth of vision which he wants to share. With powerful lyrical music and masterful arrangements, Brodie’s fine sensitivity to the fibres of music makes him as much a grounding force on the bass as an independent voice in any ensemble. The well-contoured play between tension and release puts the music in a constant momentum, drawing the listener closer to the music.
