Lorraine baker's eden - a tribute to ed

Thu 18th Oct 18 edit

Rising star Lorraine Baker bursts onto the UK Jazz Scene to launch her debut album “Eden.” Her individual style has gained attention from top international musicians, describing her playing as “magical” and “deeply rooted in the tradition of the great drummers of jazz. “The show focuses on tunes famously played by late drummer Ed Blackwell, re-arranged and using newly composed elements to give the music an edgy modern twist, perfectly showcasing the all star band and Lorraine’s unique sound as an improviser. Expect a fusion of afro, dance and rock grooves with driving swing and elements of free improvisation.
