Chris Jarrett meets Luca Ciarla
World-class piano and violin. 30 January
Lucian Ban – piano
Abraham Burton – ten sax
John Hebert – bass
Eric McPherson – drums
This is the London show of the group’s European release tour.
A powerhouse quartet, ELEVATION presents four of the most creative jazz musicians today working at the forefront of contemporary jazz. The NYC based band epitomizes new jazz at its best, music that reinvents the idiom, a sound flux that grows out of the great jazz tradition but looks into the future.
Time Out NY says “Romanian pianist-composer Lucian Ban favors searching postbop that cranes toward the avant-garde without losing the buoyance of swing. Here he heads a stellar supporting cast—saxist Abraham Burton, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Eric McPherson—at a release party for an alternately brawny and reflective new Sunnyside set, Mystery”.
