Returning to The Vortex, MOBO award-winning Kairos 4tet (Best Jazz Act) will be performing music from their critically acclaimed 3rd album 'Everything We Hold' which has received 4- and 5-star reviews across national and international media with The Observer declaring it the 'Hidden Gem of 2013'.
The album showcases the compelling rapport of a working band who have long been fine tuning their intricate dialogue on Europe's top stages, at the height of their powers. With Adam Waldmann, "a graceful player", on breathy tenor and quirky soprano sax, bassist Jasper Høiby's muscular low ends, Ivo Neame's dazzling piano, Jon Scott's hypnotic drumming and the ethereal vocals of special guest Emilia Martensson, the band allow the warmth of their communal spirit and improvisational edge to shine through.
"Spellbinding instrumentals that blend high-calibre jazz improvisation with accessible melodies…a scintillating new opus." ★★★★ MOJO
