THE COCKPIT 

Every month Jazz In The Round gathers at The Cockpit with 3 acts. 
Barrier busting Sounds. In The Round. 

The night consists of three acts.
The opening slot is dedicated to new and emerging artists. This is followed by a solo set, and then our main headliner. 

As part of our dedication to supporting new and emerging artists, we record their set.
This is then broadcast two Sundays later on Jez Nelson's Sunday night show on Jazz Fm. 


 

MONDAY 29TH APRIL
PRESTON GLASGOW LOWE, CHIMINYO

    

David Preston, Kevin Glasgow & Laurie Lowe are three of London's most creative young instrumentalists. Their music is a mash-up of shape-shifting rhythms, harmonic dystopia, and virtuosic improvisations. Expanding the format of the guitar trio with intricate and unique compositions, they draw influence from an expansive array of styles, whilst maintaining a focused and original sound. Their 2nd album, 'Something About Rainbows' was released on UK/US Label Whirlwind Recordings in November, 2018.

Taking mankind’s first instrument for dance music, the drum, and linking it to the most contemporary, the laptop, Chiminyo is exploring what it is that makes us move. With each crash of the cymbal or thump of the kick drum a cascade of brilliant electronic sounds are triggered and generated by Chiminyo’s self-designed software. This innovative set up allows him to be in complete control, freeing him from all loops, click-tracks and backing tracks. Every synth, sample and sound effect is performed live and in real time. The result is a plethora of era-spanning dance-scapes featuring ethereal arpeggios, thumping acid bass lines and heavy beats.
