BBC Radio 3 Broadcast Nu Civilisation Orchestra &BBC Concert Orchestra play 'Symphonic Ellington'

Last weekend the Nu Civilisation Orchestra joined forces with the BBC Concert Orchestra to perform extended works from the 'Symphonic Ellington' canon under the direction of conductor Michael Seal. We played to a full house at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre. For me it was a particularly unique experience as I was given the opportunity perform a piano featured work with orchestra (New World A-Comin') and conducted my orchestral arrangement of Billy Strayhorn's 'Chelsea Bridge'. It was a memorable experience and something I hope to do more of in the future. The whole concert was recorded by BBC Radio 3 and includes a superb 'Jazz Generation' world premiere commission from Misha Mu

Psychedelic Soul Sessions 16 November Poplar Union

I'm really looking forward to presenting my new trio project, the 'Psychedelic Soul Sessions' at Poplar union this Saturday. Our new direction is heavily influenced by Miles Davis' 1970s electric period and jazz funk synth stylings of Herbie Hancock with a healthy dose of afro beat, lush string pads and soulful melodic improvised explorations. Have a look at the video to get a taste of what to expect. Details are below. Really hope to see you there ! 16 November 2019 Poplar Union 7pm 2 Cotall St, Poplar, London E14 6TL Click here Peter Edwards - Keyboards | Jay Darwish - Bass | George Bird - Drums
