*About Patchwork Jazz Orchestra*
Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are a London-based millennial big band that has no leader but a variety of composers using the ensemble as a platform for fresh sounds and ideas. With such a melting pot of influences and characters, the music ranges from luscious and sweet melodies to broad walls of sound, from drum and bass to funeral marches, from fairytale ballads to calypso. The musical glue binding it together are the 17 musicians that power the vibrations and their universal passion for improvisation. Drawing on the wealth of history of the big band format, PJO have revamped it into a well-oiled machine that embraces a modern day philosophy of music making.
“Patchwork Jazz Orchestra are plugged into the spirit of the current London jazz scene, littered with talented writers and players unafraid of thinking big.” – Julian Joseph
*About Angus Bayley*
Angus Bayley is known as a composer of quiet thoughtful piano music. In 2016 he toured the UK with Scrapbook, his piano-led, “warm tapestry of folksy, storytelling, chamber jazz” septet, and 2018 saw the arrival of his first solo piano works. Now, as if to undo all the subtlety of the pieces he has crafted so far, comes his brand new rage-synthesiser set – a childish backlash to the suggestion that we’re all supposed to “behave like adults” as we get older. Like a synth-based Incubus/Radiohead with Mehldau-like harmonic sophistry.
