This special lockdown collaboration performance by Solstice, featuring animation by Grant Gilchrist, will celebrate the release of the band’s new album – “Food for Thought”. “..Creative, imaginative, wild and copiously inventive…” John Fordham – The Guardian. Solstice is a collaboration between six like-minded bandleaders and composers who share a common love of contemporary jazz, fine food and wine!

This is a pre-recorded performance not filmed at the Vortex. Many thanks to:

Louise Boer (Filmographer)
