Part of the EFG London Jazz Festival
Mopomoso presents John Russell’s Quaqua.
The highly regarded guitarist leads his own group, bringing together musicians from a variety of backgrounds and approaches in a celebration of all things improvised.
Drawn from an ever changing roster of fine improvisers from around the world with many existing connections, he adds new elements, making each group unique to every event. Starting and finishing with short pieces from the whole ensemble the rest of the evening is divided into a series of smaller units. This multiplexity of approaches allows for an engaging and direct musical experience ranging from fine detail to broad soundscapes. Musicians so far confirmed as taking part are: Steve Beresford (piano) UK , Kay Grant (voice) UK , Adam Linson (bass/electronics) UK/Canada, Martin Mayes (french horn) UK/Italy, Hideaki Shimada Japan (violin) Japan, Ketil Gutvig (electric guitar) Norway.
