The Vortex & Cafe OTO celebrate Evan Parker's 70th. 21, 23, 25 Oct at The Vortex
Led by a â€˜brilliant young pianistâ€™ (Alyn Shipton, The Guardian) the Paul Edis Sextet is steeped in the straight-ahead tradition, but with an original and contemporary edge. Their debut album There Will Be Time was voted 3rdÂ best album of 2012 best album of 2012 (Alyn Shipton, Jazzwise).
With a front line of Trumpet, Tenor Sax and Trombone, the sound is reminiscent of the great Art Blakey ensemble, but if this is music that has its roots in the 1960s, its blossoms are absolutely of today! With some intricate arrangements, solid grooves and exquisite melodies, this group has wowed audiences and critics alike with their performances to date.
