Esben Tjalve’s Red Kite

Red Kite is a sextet led by pianist Esben Tjalve joined by the highly skilled musicians and seasoned lights of the UK jazz scene; Rory Simmons (trumpet), Ross Hughes (bass clarinet), Hannes Riepler (guitar), Ferg Ireland (bass) and Tim Giles (drums).

The music is a seamless blend of electronic and acoustic sounds set in a jazz format combining the complex with accessibility and the composed with the improvised. The compositions create a musical universe that varies from cinematic meditative soundscapes to groovy tunes with reminiscent echoes of Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew”. As a result the structure of the music allows for the improvised parts to interact and co-exist with the written material leaving the individual musician space to create their own sound within the band.
