Chris Jarrett meets Luca Ciarla
World-class piano and violin. 30 January
Appearing as the 16 piece Large n-semble, The Variable n-tet is a flexible n-piece band playing music composed by Jeff Chambers. The music draws on the depth and richness of the brass chorale, the harmonic and rhythmic language of modern jazz and the quirkiness and humour of popular music. It’s sonorous, with full and rich modern jazz harmonies underpinning memorable melodies and exciting jazz solos. Influences range from early Mothers of Invention and the Canterbury Scene through to the B52s, Kenny Wheeler and the Loose Tubes generation.
