Hackensack - avian wu / lilli unwin, rob
Thu 1st Nov 18 edit
Hackensack is a monthly event held on Thursdays at Cafe Jazz. The focus is on the NEW and the FRESH and operates mainly, but not exclusively within the realm of jazz and improvised music. Double bills every month.
This newly formed chordless trio burns up the silence into a shining combination of pyrotechnic exploration and humble tribute to some finely selected contemporary repertoire.
Eddie Jones-West (Drums) - Coren Sithers (Alto sax) - Ben Manning (Double bass)
Lilli Unwin with Rob Luft
Lilli Unwin is an enchanting, soulful young singer and composer, visiting Hackensack from London, where, since graduating from Trinity Laban Conservatoire, she has been developing her original material as well as touring and collaborating with some of the UK's finest jazz musicians. Performing at Ronnie Scott’s, Southbank Centre, Shambala Festival, 55 Bar in New York, Rotterdam’s A Festival Downtown, and Brainchild Festival - to name but a few.
Rob Luft certainly falls well within the category of one of the finest musicians we've had at Hackensack. We've seen him play with the likes of Corrie Dick, Joe Webb, Tom McCredie and Joe Wright and he makes his glorious return this Autumn in the playfully intimate setting that is duo with Lilli Unwin.
