Blazing Flame Quintet plus The Drop Outs

There’s a buzz about Blazing Flame Quintet which makes this ‘Double Improv’ date a must-go-to gig.  Rigobert Dittman described vocalist/poet Steve Day’s music as having “astonishing imagination and an alchemical flame...” and Jazzwise has referred to Peter Evan’s electric violin being on “starling form”.  They include a true phenomenon of the UK downtown scene, Mark Langford on tenor sax & bass clarinet.  Tonight they are joined by special guests, The Drop Outs featuring the brilliant guitarist Phil Gibbs, teamed with free-jazz drum & bass, Roger Skerman and Paul Anstey.  A double 2017 exploratory improv entertainment that cuts to the head, heart and body.


 “....a formidable group of improvisers.” Ian Maund, Sandy Brown Jazz
