After a 3 year hiatus MOBO Award winning Kairos 4Tet return to present music from their upcoming 4th album, delving deeper in to the art of song. Regarded as one of a kind – Kairos 4Tet bridge the gap between classic and contemporary; the jazz orbit and folk lineage; with ferocious grooves, searching improvisations and melodies that linger long after the music stops.
The band play the distinctive compositions of saxophonist Adam Waldmann, who has been described as “a young master in the making” by Time Out and a “precociously talented composer and player” by AllAboutJazz.com. As well as Parliamentary Jazz ‘Vocalist of the Year’ award winner Emilia Mårtensson, the band features Alice Zawadski who is described by MOJO Magazine as “something of a phenomenon” and legendary British drummer Rich Spaven.
“Under the leadership of saxophonist Adam Waldmann, Kairos 4Tet have found a melodious medium between traditional Jazz and the forward facing nature of the great young British Jazz groups. The band’s compositions are open and accessible, but there’s no compromise when it comes to intuitive, intelligent playing and adventurous arrangements” THE MERCURY PRIZE
