World-renowned pianist Brad Mehldau switches to Fender Rhodes and a battery of vintage synths to partner up with acclaimed drummer Mark Guiliana in a collaboration whose rare US club sets and recent intimate UK dates have generated a massive buzz.

Playing without set compositions, this is quintessential Brad and Mark that takes in free improv, forays into drum 'n' bass and a nod back to the dance funk spirit of the early 1970s.

Burn is the most apt description you could possibly find for the first album from Shabaka Hutchings and his multigroove  four-piece, Sons of Kemet with twin drummers Tom Skinner and Seb Rochford bottomed out by the tubatronix of Oren Marshall. Music that digs into Caribbean and African roots with a contemporary jazz swagger and attitude – ‘dazzlingly adventurous’ (Guardian).

Please note that Sons of Kemet will play the second set of tonight’s concert
