ImPossibilities & The Exiles

Part of the Guildhall Autumn Jazz Festival

The Exiles - Scott Stroman on vocals and Steve Williamson on saxophone

Guildhall School's Autumn Jazz Festival concludes with performances by The Exiles and ImPossibilities as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival.

The Exiles bring their joyful freedom, virtuosity and rich sound to music by Stroman, Rebello, Wayne Shorter, Ivan Linz, Ralph Towner and John Taylor.

ImPossibilities was formed in 2013 in response to a performance by the legendary Sun Ra Arkestra, at the acclaimed Barbican Transcender Festival. Since its inception, students from Guildhall School have collaborated with young aspiring musicians, poets and leading international jazz musicians to create new musical hybrids, under the artistic leadership of guitarist, educationalist, composer and Sun Ra archivist Paul Griffiths. The band creates a sonic amalgam of free jazz, spiritual sounds, roots and folkloric music, hip-hop, nu-soul, spoken word, groove and abstraction. 

Presented by Guildhall School of Music & Drama.

This concert is part of the EFG London Jazz Festival and Guildhall School's 2020 Autumn Jazz Festival
